Dallas-Fort Worth

Make-A-Wish North Texas is pleased to announce Ebby Halliday as Honorary Chair for the 17th Annual Wish Night gala presented by Helzberg Diamonds on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Ms. Halliday’s generosity of her time, donations, and endless care has touched the lives of many including the hearts of North Texas children battling life-threatening medical conditions.

Much like Make-A-Wish®, Ms. Halliday instills hope, strength and joy into the lives of countless individuals through her charitable works and organizations.

“Be honest, touch people’s lives, look at people when you talk to them, don’t criticize the competition and do something nice for someone every day!” – Ebby Halliday

Guests will arrive at 6:00 p.m. for “A Night for Heroes”. The evening begins with a cocktail hour featuring music by Time Machine followed by a silent auction, three-course dinner, live auction, special performance from past wish recipients, and the ever so popular midnight snack.

Since inception, Wish Night has raised more than $10 million to grant wishes throughout the North Texas community and thanks to the generous help from outstanding individuals and organizations like Helzberg Diamonds®, American Airlines and Ms. Ebby Halliday, this signature event continues to grow with the hopes of helping the North Texas chapter fulfill every eligible child’s one true wish.
