Saturday, March 9, was the Make-A-Wish Gala. We’ve been framing the wish kids’ art for auction for about 5 years now. Three pieces were in the live auction.
The princesses sold for $3,500. The solar system piece sold for $10,000. The Husky dog (by Cody, aka agent C) was the centerpiece of the whole night.
The theme of the night was “Mission Incredible.” Cody’s wish was to be a secret agent. His wish was videoed and shown at the event! For the auction, the evil villain, Rex Velvet, and the Social Villains Alliance stole the husky art and challenged Agent C to catch him. (We had made a dummy frame as an empty prop!) Naturally, by the end, good triumphed over evil and the husky piece sold for $13,000!
The evening raised $1.25 MILLION for Make a Wish!
