Power of a Wish Gala

June 07, 2018

Tina Fey
Time :

6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Location :

Cipriani Wall Street

Tina Fey will host the 2018 Power of a Wish Gala, celebrating 35 years of creating life-changing experiences for kids battling critical illnesses in the Metro New York area. The 35th Anniversary black-tie event will be held June 7, at Cipriani Wall Street. Ms. Fey will take the stage to bring awareness to the extraordinary power of hope in healing and to help ensure that every eligible child can get a life-transforming wish. 

Ms. Fey has herself granted the wishes of several children who dreamed of meeting her and visiting the set of one of her TV shows or movies. Wish kid Hailey, who lives with a life-threatening autoimmune disease, wished to meet Tina on the set of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Hailey’s mother said, “the experience put the fight back into her -  I can see it in her eyes.”

More than 700 guests came together in 2017 to raise $1.6 million to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. This year’s gala will celebrate an incredible 35 years of granting life-changing wishes in Metro New York.

This inspirational evening includes cocktails, dinner, auctions and dancing the night away with Marianne Bennett and her band
