The Dreamers

| February 5, 2013 | Parties

More than 200 guests gathered at the Balboa Bay Club for Make-A-Wish’s gala—and, true to the nonprofit’s mission, dreams came true throughout the night. Take the $150,000 raised: Those funds will benefit critically ill children whose lives are touched by the nonprofit. And then there were the live and silent auctions, and an opportunity drawing, which delivered a diamond and pearl necklace from Black, Starr & Frost—a dazzler coveted by many in the room. But nothing could compare to the moment when the org granted the wish of 3-year-old Avery, who simply wanted to be crowned princess—and that she was, with her mother and father beside her. An Evening of Wishes, indeed. Photos by Cassandra Botelho
