Description

Join us for a sunset cruise on the yacht to benefit Make-A-Wish. Watch fireworks with us this Labor Day while enjoying food by Chef Scott Commings, Lake Las Vegas' Executive Chef and Season 12 Hell's Kitchen Winner! Dance to a DJ under the stars and possibly win one of many raffled prizes!

Founded in 1996, Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada has granted over 2,000 wishes to children in Clark, Esmeralda, Lincoln and Nye counties. Additionally, each year the chapter hosts nearly 40 children from other states and countries who wish to visit Las Vegas or meet celebrities performing in Las Vegas. That means our chapter is involved in granting a wish nearly every other day, and we do it with a small and committed staff as well as the collective strength of over 500 volunteers to fulfill our mission. Our volunteers participate in all facets of our operations including fundraising, office support, special events, community relations, wish granting and governance. Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada is part of Make-A-Wish® America, whose network of chapters has granted more than 315,000 wishes since 1980. Today, a wish is granted every 34 minutes in the U.S.

In fiscal year 2018, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada granted 143 wishes in our community and assisted with executing another 32 wishes for children from other areas of the country who come to Las Vegas to have their wishes granted. That’s 175 wishes in Southern Nevada alone – one wish almost every other days.


Of every dollar donated to Make-A-Wish, over 70 percent goes to wish granting. This exceeds program service allocation standards set forth by leading charity watchdog groups, including the Council of Better Business Bureaus. Make-A-Wish was one of the first charities to earn the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance Seal and has earned the highest rating, four stars, from Charity Navigator, the nation’s premier independent charity evaluator.
