20th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish BallSaturday, November 1, 7pm-11pm – InterContinental Miami, 100 Chopin Plaza, Miami

Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida and InterContinental® Miami celebrated the 20th year of InterContinental® Miami Make-A-Wish® Ball, which is chaired by philanthropist Shareef Malnik. The star-studded Gala hosted more than 1,000 VIPs, socialites, fashion mavens, celebrities and notable philanthropists with a common goal of raising funds for Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Guests followed the yellow brick road and experienced an exhilarating “OZ Reimagined”. Beloved actress Gabrielle Anwar shined on stage as Celebrity Auctioneer and Nicole Graziano, whose wish to perform on Broadway was granted in 2007, inspired the sold-out crowd with a beautiful rendition of “Over The Rainbow.” This exciting night ended on a high note with a live performance by the legendary Diana Ross, one of the most iconic female artists of all time, performing some of her greatest hits. In all, $2.3 million was raised to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
