We went to the 3rd annual Make-A-Wish Night Under the Stars reception, hosted by the Mid-Atlantic's Young Professionals Council at the Jones Day Building.
Make-A-Wish grants children with life-threatening medical conditions their biggest wishes to bring joy and hope to their lives. We snapped Personalized Therapy's Emily Lynch, Harbor 22's Meredith Murray, Jordan Hinds, and Thorsen Construction's Mollie Thorsen.
Guests ate bites of beef empanadas, shrimp dumplings, and mini crab cakes while participating in a silent auction. Here, Josh Sandifer, HUD OIG's Neel Iwer, and HSMAI's Nora Cloherty.
The signature cocktail, Wish Upon a Star, was champagne, gin, lemon and edible sparkles. Here, Marriott International's Susan DeBottis, and Hilton Worldwide's Joshua Ruck and Laura Hoxie.
Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic has granted over 8,500 wishes since 1983. Here, BAH's Jimmy De Martini, West Lane Schlager's Jonathan Danziger, Solomon Real Estate's Jeremy Ledin, Brownstein Group's Caitlin Schlert, and IBM's Karen Freudenberg.
