Event description


Prepare to say WOW!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make wishes come true? Join us for a peek behind the wish-granting curtain at WOW: Wonder of Wishes!

Hear about the lasting impact of a wish, the sheer number of people in our community it takes to create a wish, and the reason it all matters.

Invite your friends and join Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington for WOW: Wonder of Wishes luncheon!

Right now, there are enough children waiting for their wishes to fill more than seven school busses. Without wishes, these kids aren’t getting everything they need to fight their illnesses. Together, we can change that. Your generosity and support can help children replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope when their wishes come true.

Key dates and times:

  • Register by October 24

  • Ballroom doors open at 11:30 a.m.

  • Luncheon and program from 12- 1 p.m.


When is the last date I can register?

Please register on or before Thursday, October 24, 2019. If you have changes to your registration after that, email and we do our best to accommodate.

What is the cost to attend?

The WOW luncheon is a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington; however there is no cost to attend. During the program, you will be asked to make a gift by check or credit card. The suggested minimum donation is $150 to fund life-changing wishes for local children with critical illnesses. Sponsorships have completely underwritten the costs associated with the luncheon, so all gifts made go directly to support wish-granting.

What if I have dietary restrictions or other special needs?

We can accommodate most dietary concerns and special needs. Call Jessica Quijada at 206.588.8959 or email by October 24.

Can I request to sit near a friend?

Yes! When you register as an individual guest, you have the option to include your friend’s name. If you’ve already registered and want to request a seating assignment, please email
