Fig Columbia is proud that Make-A-Wish® South Carolina is our 2017 Social Mission Partner. For the chance to win two tickets to their upcoming Wish Ball, just leave a comment below about why you'd like to attend. 

Make-A-Wish® South Carolina-Wish will host its 4th Annual Wish Ball on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at the University of South Carolina Alumni Center. The gala celebrates the Make-A-Wish mission by raising funds to grant the wishes of South Carolina children with life-threatening medical conditions.

This year, Make-A-Wish is excited to help event guests explore the transformative experience a wish provides to all involved--donors, volunteers and wish families. Throughout the evening, guests will follow the wish experience of a Wish Kid through virtual and live presentations. 

Make-A-Wish is delighted to announce there will be a LIVE REVEAL of a wish at the gala. Grayson is a happy three-year-old who loves to play and watch cartoons. However, a heart defect caused Grayson to undergo a heart transplant. His surgeries and condition have taken precious time away from his childhood, but Grayson has remained joyful. At the ball, Make-A-Wish will reveal to Grayson, live on-stage, that his wish is coming true! Grayson will spend the evening in Columbia and on Sunday morning will be whisked away by limousine to head to Walt Disney World® Resort.

Make-A-Wish looks forward to granting his wish together with our supporters so that Grayson can feel uplifted and able to see where his favorite cartoon mouse lives.

WHY: Participants will help raise funds for the South Carolina chapter of Make-A-Wish to grant wishes for local children.

They help strengthen families and communities.
