Wishes Need Stars Like You…

The hope a wish provides can be transformational, renewing energy and providing children with critical illnesses the strength to fight. It can even have the power to help them overcome their illness. But it doesn’t stop there. A wish can change hundreds of lives. Creating connection. Fostering optimism. And inspiring generosity and kindness.

Join us on August 26th as we celebrate our incredible wish kids while ensuring we will be able to grant the wishes of the 500 children who are waiting.


Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
By supporting our 2nd Annual Wishes Under the Stars gala, you have an opportunity to share in the life-changing power of a wish. Wishes aren’t possible without the help of our generous San Antonio community, and we thank you for your support.
