Sixth Annual Wish Luncheon Helps Grant Wishes


Make-A-Wish® Oklahoma is hosting “If Purses were Wishes and More” Wish Luncheon on Tuesday, March 5 at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. The auction begins at 11:00 a.m. and a wonderful lunch is served at noon. This year, the luncheon will feature keynote speaker and wish recipient Lorelei, whose wish to be the OKC Thunder coach received national recognition.

The silent auction includes vintage to new handbags, jewelry, luggage and accessories. The fabulous items have been donated by various boutiques, individuals and celebrities.  All of the proceeds will stay in the state of Oklahoma to grant wishes for children suffering with life-threatening illnesses to bring them hope, strength and joy.

“This annual event has become a ‘must attend’ and this year will not disappoint guests!” said Whitney Moss, Committee Member. “We have some many amazing treasures from all over metro, as well as very unique live auction selections. Who wants to attend the Thunder/ Lakers game with 4 awesome seats on March 5th? If you attend the Wish Luncheon, you will have the chance to bid on the tickets! Tables fill quickly so call today to reserve your table for you and your friends.” 

Over the past six years, this luncheon has grown into one of the most anticipated charity events in Oklahoma City.  There are currently 117 children waiting for their heartfelt wish to be granted. Tables of 10 are available for $750 and individual tickets are available for $85 each by contacting Lauren Grady at 405-286-4000 or ytenql@bxynubzn.jvfu.bet. Grady also has information about sponsoring the event and donating items for the auction.

 

The event committee includes Angela Cox, Shannon Edwards, Courtney Eilerts, Lauren Grady, Kandy Hadley, Wendy Smith House, Lenice Keim, Laura Meyer, Whitney Moss, Shannon Presti, Jessica Ockershauser and Allison Williams.
