Wishmaker’s Ball in Jacksonville raises $400K for Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida

Fifty local kids will get their wishes granted thanks to Jacksonville’s generosity.

This weekend, Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida held its first Wishmaker’s Ball in our area.

Hundreds of people showed up and raised nearly $400,000.

Action News Jax anchors John Bachman and Tenikka Hughes had a blast hosting the event.

They shared a number of stories of local kids with critical illnesses who, with their wishes granted, smiled more and had hope, helping with their recoveries.

You can still donate to the Wishmaker’s Ball until Tuesday night. To learn more about how to do that, click here.
