The Make-A-Wish® Crystal Ball Fundraiser took place at the Doubletree by Hilton on Saturday the 16th May.I’m honored to be an ambassador for this amazing charity. The ball was a potent reminder of the inspiring work done by the foundation granting wishes to brave children battling life-threatening medical conditions all over Ireland.

The memories that make a wish create are ones that are treasured forever. These special days help families forget about the illness and hard times. On the night of the ball Norah Casey spoke about her sons friend who passed away some years ago but before he had a wish and it’s a memory that her son cherishes forever.

Special guests on the evening were the Conneely Family who were recipients of a wish. Wish mother Rosie made an emotional speech about how her family lived through Aideen’s illness myelodysplastic syndrome and the impact her child’s wish made to her entire family. Aideen’s wish was to be a Barbie Fashion designer. The video above is of Aideen’s wish and it was premiered at the event and it really shows how important the work is that make a wish do xx
