Matthew and the Night of Wonders Gala
The Night of Wonders Gala is coming up on March 8th! Our General Manager Kevin Mazzone is proud to be the gala co-chair this year, and we will be catering a 3 course dinner and sponsoring the event.
Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to nearly 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!
The annual Night of Wonders gala is the premier event of Children’s Wish, BC & Yukon Chapter, bringing together 350 of Vancouver’s business and cultural luminaries to help grant wishes for dozens of seriously ill children. Night of Wonders encapsulates the essence of wishes – creating joy, awe, and wonder.
The gala, and the wonderful work of the Children’s Wish Foundation have been featured in this article by the Daily Hive. Matthew Boroditsky was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and was selected to receive a wish. Rather than choosing a gift or experience for himself, Matthew chose a “giving wish” – using his wish for the benefit of others. Read the article for the incredible story of how Matthew turned his circumstances around and impacted the lives of many in Guatemala.
Matthew’s story will be shared at this year’s Night of Wonders Gala – expected to be the biggest yet. The organization plans to grant up to 50 wishes for BC and Yukon children this year with proceeds from the event. Tickets are still available here – join us at the event or send a donation to this great cause.
