Make-A-Wish® North Texas Calls on Heroes to Assemble at 17th Annual Wish Night® Gala


May 14, 2013


Dallas-Fort Worth

Make-A-Wish North Texas calls on heroes to assemble at this Saturday’s Wish Night: A Night for Heroes, presented by Helzberg Diamonds®, where guests will be taken through a night full of wonder, action and adventure; a night where heroes aren't necessarily caped crusaders nor made of steel, but rather children fighting through life's greatest obstacles with a smile on their faces AND the donors, volunteers and fans that continue to make those smiles happen.

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 this year’s Honorary Chair, Ms. Ebby Halliday, this signature event continues to grow with the hope of helping Make-A-Wish North Texas fulfill every eligible child’s one true wish.

Wish Night’s live and silent auctions usually generate a large portion of the funds raised throughout the evening, 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.

With several beautiful pieces of jewelry donated by Helzberg Diamonds and other auction items that include exciting excursions, unique travel experiences, ultimate sports fan packages and one-of-a-kind Wish Art created by wish kids, the Wish Night auctions have a robust selection, but more unique items are needed.

Make-A-Wish North Texas calls on heroes in the North Texas community to help.

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

Wish Night: A Night for Heroes will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX.
