ABOUT YACHT BLAST FOR KIDS
Since its Inception in 2009, Yacht Blast for Kids has granted 279 wishes for deserving wish children through Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin. Each year, nearly 40 Make-A-Wish kids and their families are invited out on some of Milwaukee's premier yachts for an amazing morning on the water - followed by an afternoon picnic with games, magician, raffles, auctions, face painting and more.
This year, there will be the opportunity to enjoy a magnificent evening under the stars to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Yacht Blast for Kids. Indulge in gourmet delicacies artfully prepared by Milwaukee Yacht Club Executive Chef Santo D’Amato while enjoying live music under the stars. “Boat Load of Wishes” will feature a spectacular wine tasting, live & silent auctions, liquor pull and much more! A remarkable opportunity to bid on a Sunset Champagne Cruise aboard a magnificent 62 foot yacht will make this a truly unique evening. This dazzling event will be a night to remember, and all funds raised will be used to grant wishes to the many children battling critical illnesses.
Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin grants wishes to children 2.5-18 years old, who are living with critical illnesses. Since their founding in 1984, more than 7,900 children and their families throughout the state have experienced the life-changing power of a wish.
A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. You can help change a child's life by participating in Yacht Blast For Kids.
