17th Annual Wish Night® Expected to Raise More Than $1.3 Million


May 06, 2013


Dallas-Fort Worth

For sixteen years, the Wish Night gala has played a vital role in bringing hope, strength and joy to the lives of children battling life-threatening medical conditions by collectively raising more than $10 million to grant wishes throughout the North Texas community.

Traditionally, the live and silent auctions generate a large portion of the funds raised at Wish Night, and this year promises to be no exception. With an outstanding selection of items Make-A-Wish® North Texas is looking to raise more than $1.3 million to grant wishes for children in North Texas.

Helzberg Diamonds®, this year’s title sponsor, has generously donated several pieces of jewelry with a retail value of more than $40,000 along with other featured items in the live auction.

Other auction items include exciting excursions, unique travel experiences, ultimate sports fan packages and Wish Art, created by wish kids including renowned Wish Kid artist, Jeffrey Owen Hanson who has created an original hand-painted gown along with a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that will be featured in this year’s live auction line-up.

Join Make-A-Wish North Texas, Honorary Chair Ms. Ebby Halliday, American Airlines and Helzberg Diamonds on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel for Wish Night 2013: A Night for Heroes. You will leave mesmerized with amazing new items from the auction as well as the satisfaction that you have helped make children’s wishes come true.

Ways to help
  1. New to this year’s auction is the Wish Night Wish List Amazon Registry! Much like a wedding registry, Make-A-Wish North Texas has selected items that will help enhance the silent auction while allowing anyone to participate in donating to Wish Night! Unlike a business which can often donate a good or service, individuals don’t always have an item to donate but this registry allows anyone the opportunity to be a part of helping wishes come true!

  2. You can also purchase a ticket for your chance to win a new 2013 smart Pure Coupe courtesy of Park Place Dealerships. Only 300 tickets are available and the winner will be announced at Wish Night. You can easily purchase your ticket at
