On this gorgeous Wedding Wednesday, it seemed appropriate to feature a fabulous event for a wonderful cause. A week ago, the Wish Upon a Wedding Southern California hosted their annual gala at the Hilton, Costa Mesa California. With 180 guests at attendance, and some amazing sponsors, the gala was a success! You know that I love weddings and not only because they are pretty to look at, but the fact that it brings two people together to express their love for each other. Then add Wish Upon a Wedding, who provides a wedding dream to couples who are facing terminal illness or life altering circumstances, and I am really touched. I was so excited to be part of this night, and be surrounded by not only lovely and gorgeous details, but to see how many care so much for this cause. I smiled the whole night, and can not help but smile as I write up this feature.
A few words from Percy Sales, President of Wish Upon a Wedding Southern California Chapter…
The 4th Blissful Wishes Gala was a huge success! The board of Wish Upon a Wedding Southern California would like to thank everyone who attended, our sponsors, donors and volunteers! The evening included a live and silent auction that included a trip to Bora Bora, a ride in a Formula Drift car, and a lively photo booth by The SoCal Shutterbooth Girls. Guests danced the night away to the sounds of The Society Band and a special performance by Frenchie Davis, star of The Voice, American Idol and Broadway. The most heartfelt moments were speeches by our recent Wish recipients John and Jo-Ann which brought the crowd tearfully to their feet. Shining Star honorees were Rev. Clint Hufft. Pauline Parry and Kevin Covey.
With everyone’s generosity and support we have raised over $45,000 for our organization! Thank you all!
