Martin Short To Headline Wish Ball


The Make-A-Wish Illinois Chapter will be holding their annual black-tie Wish Ball on Saturday, May 18, 2013. Their signature event will be held at the UIC Forum on Roosevelt and Halsted (725 West Roosevelt Road). The elegant evening will feature incredible live and silent auctions, dinner, dancing a raffle and much more. That much more includes celebrity entertainment, most notably the headliner, comedian superstar Martin Short.

The event will start at 6:00 pm with cocktails and the auction, and the dinner and program will follow at 7:30. Individual tickets are $500 a person or you can purchase a full table for $5,000. On the registration page you have the option of entering the raffle, one ticket is $20 but you can get three for $50. The night is sure to be amazing and if the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live is any indicator, Martin Short is still ridiculously funny. For tickets to the event, click here.
