Last year, the Des Moines Gala raised enough money to grant 34 wishes to Iowa kids. During this unprecedented time of change, the need for wishes is even greater. Due to medical concerns, travel wishes have been postponed until further notice. It is up to us to ensure that once it’s safe, we are ready to grant these wishes as quickly as possible, so no child is waiting even a minute longer than necessary.
Join us for the 27th Annual Des Moines Gala – A Virtual Affair, Saturday, June 13th on FACEBOOK Live or in your Qtego Qsite(which you'll be able to access after registering your phone for the auction).
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 13, join hosts Kelley Moody of KCCI, Des Moines Gala Chair JoDee Stensland and Make-A-Wish Iowa CEO Jennifer Woodley for cocktail hour and the best (and worst!) dressed contest. Stick around for a live auction and inspiring wish stories as we come together to fill the star and grant the wishes of children facing a critical illness.
Make sure to mark that you're "going" on our FACEBOOK Event to receive all the updates, including what to expect, pre-event activities and the link to the silent auction.
