Photos: Make-A-Wish 2019 Gala
Check out scenes from the April 6, 2019, event at InterContinental Boston.
On April 6, 2019, nearly 500 Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island supporters gathered for the 2019 Make-A-Wish Gala at the InterContinental Boston. With the theme of Illuminate the Journey, the event highlighted stories of wish children and the generous community of supporters who help make wishes come true. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots legend, was presented with the 2019 Wish Hero Award for his outstanding work as a wish granter, having fulfilled the wishes of 14 children from across the country since 2012. Rob was joined onstage by three wish recipients who met him through their wishes: Ryan (2018), Cole (2012), and Jordyn (2017). The memorable evening, emceed by Liz Brunner, raised over $900,000 to grant wishes for nearly 100 children with life-threatening medical conditions in the coming months.
