BANGOR (January 26, 2019) – Brewer Kiwanis will host its 7th Annual Wishing Under the Stars Gala at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on January 26th, 2019. Over the past seven years this successful event has raised the funds to grant twenty-seven wishes to Maine children battling critical illnesses.
The fun-filled evening will include a plated dinner, music, dancing, live and silent auction, as well as an extra special presentation from former wish kid, and current wish granter, Ben Carter. Ben’s wish to go to Walt Disney World was granted in 2001 when he was just 5 years-old. Now 18 years later, join us as Ben surprise’s his current wish kid, Melinda, and see first-hand her reaction as she learns her wish will be granted.
Tickets are on sale now and are $50/person. They can be purchased through this link: https://buff.ly/2Dwyh4Q or by calling Lordina at Marsh Property 974-6606.

Maine Make-A-Wish Maine creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment Journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and volunteers in Maine grant one wish every 5 days. Since 1992, Make-A-Wish Maine has granted more than 1,450 wishes to children in Maine. All money raised in Maine stays in Maine. All wish expenses are fully covered by Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish Maine is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and all contributions are tax deductible. The Maine chapter has over 200 volunteers statewide, and a staff of eight. Our office is located 66 Mussey Road in Scarborough.
