Have you ever pumped your fists after sinking a putt? Faked a home run trot around your backyard?  Raised your arms to signal a game winning touchdown, even though no one was around?

The Make-A-Wish Foundation ® of Southern Florida understands.

We all secretly wish to be the hero, even for just a moment. Sports can provide that opportunity, especially for a child.   Next Thursday, February 25, at 6:00pm  at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida the Make-A-Wish Foundation will be celebrating those magical moments that live inside each and every one of us, and you’re invited! 

The star-studded extravaganza will be filled with various interactive moments with local and national celebrities from the world of sports and entertainment, as well as some very special wish children. The auction will have unique items that appeal to the avid collector as well as someone just looking for a special keepsake. The hotel’s catering has promised to create an epicurean delight from the hors d’oeuvres to the sit down dinner.
