On behalf of the Chair of Night of Wonders, Jessica Hollander, and the Gala Organizing Committee who have each encouraged their personal networks to donate, we are very proud to share a preview of our exquisite Live Auction packages.  Each of these items has been generously donated to Children’s Wish to help us grant wishes to some very special children and their families.  

Please note that while auction purchases are not eligible for charitable tax receipts, guests will be invited to make a philanthropic gift to Children’s Wish at the event, following the Live Auction. Charitable tax receipts will be issued in full for each of these commitments.
