McLean, VA - Corcentric was a part of the magic in Washington, DC, when Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic held its 2nd Annual Evening of Wishes Gala. The mid-May event, which included silent and live auctions and presentations on wishes coming true for local kids, raised more than $650,000.
Corcentric, a sponsor of the event, was represented by Matt Clark, Corcentric Chief Operating Officer, and his wife Allison. "We were honored to be able to contribute to the fantastic efforts of Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic," Clark said. "The joy that each wish brings to children who are experiencing such difficult health issues is priceless. We commend the Mid-Atlantic committee for organizing such a wonderful and positive evening."
More than 470 guests attended the gala and were treated to an inspiring video of wish kid Nitin, who was able to realize his wish of being a Washington Wizard. Other children who have benefitted from the efforts of the foundation shared their touching stories. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic has granted more than 8,300 wishes in the Mid-Atlantic region since its founding in 1983. This year alone, Make-A-Wish estimates that 840 local children will be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Currently, there are more than 600 local kids waiting for their wishes to be granted.
