17th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball

On Saturday, November 5, 2011, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida and InterContinental Miami celebrated the 17th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball to the theme of Truman Capote’s legendary Black & White Ball of 1966.

With a performance by rock-n-roll legend Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, an action-packed live auction emceed by Burn Notice star Gabrielle Anwar, the fourth anniversary of the InterContinental Make-A-Wish Nightclub, and the achievement of a $10 million lifetime fundraising milestone, the affair fulfilled its namesake prophecy as “The Party of the Century.”

“This year’s Ball was a dream come true,” said Norman Wedderburn, President and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida. “Joan Jett gave a performance of a lifetime, Gabrielle Anwar put her heart and soul into raising funds during the live auction, and our supporters never seemed more excited and optimistic. All of these elements combined contributed to the incredible achievement of our lifetime fundraising milestone, which we far surpassed.”

This year’s Ball was again made possible by the “Three Amigos:” Wedderburn; Ball Chairman and proprietor of The Forge | Restaurant and Wine Bar Shareef Malnik; and Ball Host and InterContinental Miami’s General Manager Robert Hill.
