Make-A-Wish hosts white party Saturday, Oct. 2, at Michael's On East.
Michael's On East transformed into a chic, white-washed luxury nightclub for Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida, Sarasota Region's "Wish" event Friday, Oct. 2. More than 275 party goers arrived in all white attire and were entertained by music, aerial performers and a balloon pop dress.
Chaired by Phil and Kim Mancini and Gary and Beth Kompothecras, the second annual event raised more than $50,000 to support the Make-A-Wish mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community.
