Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida is an organization built upon its volunteers.

The Wishmaker’s Ball is our chapter’s largest fundraiser and we would not be able to build upon its success without our committee of volunteers dedicated to ensuring not only the success of the gala, but that your time spent with us is a memorable one!
