The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Connecticut will celebrate wishes come true for Connecticut kids with life-threatening medical conditions at its “Evening of Wishes” Gala on April 21st at the Mohegan Sun Casinos in Uncasville, Connecticut. The Connecticut chapter has granted over 2,000 wishes since its inception in 1986, from puppies to backyard playgrounds, from meeting a favorite movie star to visiting the beaches of Normandy.
The Annual “Evening of Wishes” Gala will celebrate the wonderful story of wish recipient Jamie Botteon, from Bristol. Jamie’s wish came true when she and her family departed on a tropical adventure to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas this January. Jamie and her family will be the guests of honor, representing the Foundation and its incredible efforts to bring hope, strength and joy to a child in a time of need. The evening will feature music, dancing and exciting live and silent auctions with countless items to bid on. Also joining in the celebration will be celebrity chef Robert Irvine of the Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible,” who will create and present an exclusive amazing dinner menu live.
