3rd Annual “Art of the Wish” Event at 111 Minna Gallery on Friday June 21, 2013

Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area YPAC is proud to announce details for the 3rd Annual Art of the Wish cocktail event and silent auction benefiting Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. Art of the Wish will take place at 111 Minna Gallery on Friday, June 21, 2013, beginning at 5:30 p.m. For a suggested donation of $15 in advance, $20 at the door, guests will enjoy art created by Make-A-Wish children – the original pieces of which will be auctioned off with prints available for purchase – in addition to complimentary small bites, cash bar with specialty cocktails, live DJ music, a photobooth and more.

During the Make-A-Wish wish granting process, children are encouraged to create “Wish Art” — colorful drawings that represent the dreams, aspirations and ideas behind their chosen wish. The annual Art of the Wish event was created to celebrate Wish Art and continue to support wish granting efforts for children with life threatening medical conditions. Guests of Art of the Wish will enjoy the children’s’ interpretations as they look back at a variety of unique experiences from rubbing elbows with celebrities at the Grammy’s, getting the royal treatment with Disney princesses, to exploring the world of large, dangerous cats. These one-of-a-kind pieces created by wish children will be on display and for sale.

More than 35 silent auction packages, running the gamut from art to travel, wine, entertainment and sports, include the following:

  • Overnight stay at Carmel Valley Ranch
  • 2x Jawbone JAMBOX speakers
  • #52 SF 49ers Patrick Willis autographed Football
  • Season passes to hit the slopes at Sugar Bowl
  • ‘80s night out with Bay Area-loved cover band, Tainted Love

In 2012, Art of the Wish raised $7,500 to support Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and YPAC has set a goal of raising $10,000 through this year’s event.
