“Night of Stars” is the Spokane Chapter’s first annual fundraising event that benefits the Wishing Star foundation. This event is open to the public and is held at The Center on Sixth in Downtown Spokane on Saturday, November 10 at 5:30 pm. The dinner and auction will feature amazing live and silent auction items from hotels, restaurants and many local businesses. Individual ticket prices are $50 or $350 for a table of 8. Each ticket comes with an elegant dinner and desert as well as an opportunity to bid on our fantastic auction items.
But the event is about so much more than raising money. It's about making wishes come true for kids who are so deserving for kids like Ethan Hegge who is six years old. Ethan lives in Spokane and suffers from Congenital Encephalopathy. Some of the complications from this brain disease are blindness, not being able to speak and various other delays. His brain will continue to deteriorate resulting in changes in personality and cognitive alterations. Some of the things that Ethan loves are dancing, car rides, noisy toys and school. When we met with Ethan it was clear that he wants a therapy room. A place of his own where he can have various stimulating activities. At this time Ethan’s family is in a small apartment and are in the process of finding a larger home where Ethan can have the therapy room. In the mean time Ethan and his family participate in various Wishing Star events like the carousel party.
