Party Pics: 13th Annual Wish Ball

Modern Luxury Staff | February 9, 2018 | Parties

The 13th annual Wish Ball treated 600 elite attendees, plus Make-A-Wish Georgia’s nine Wish Kids—Andi, Connor, Alexis, Mandy and Thiago, to name a few—to a Saturday night full of refreshing sips, a silent auction, decadent dining (think beef tenderloin with a dessert trio to top it all off) and a live auction.

Event chairs Tony and Susan Catalfano, Patti Dickey, Make-A-Wish Georgia CEO Tim Earley, host Melissa Knowles, Laurie Schaub

The more-than-memorable evening raised over $235,000 (in just 10 minutes!), benefiting Fund-A-Wish to grant the wishes of local children battling life-threatening medical conditions, like Wish Kid Zayden, whose emotional story captivated the entire room; and Ethan, who ended the night with a performance of Luke Bryan cover songs, plus an original piece that earned him a standing ovation.
