Rex Velvet To Foil Make-A-Wish® Alaska And Washington's Gala this Weekend


March 07, 2013


Seattle, WA

Who and What

The sinister Seattle super villain is reportedly at it again. Rumor has it that he is planning to sabotage Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington’s Mission: Incredible, Wish Night Gala and Auction on Saturday, March 9.

More than 1,000 guests will be at the event (think Mission Impossible meets 007) to raise funds to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Kids like Colby who overthrew Rex Velvet this past summer during his wish to be a secret agent. Colby’s wish is the evening’s inspiration and is likely why Rex Velvet has made it his most recent mission to destroy the event.

In addition to Colby’s wish story, guests will also hear from John Crowley, father of two Make-A-Wish recipients whose family’s story was made into the major motion picture starring Brendan Frazier and Harrison Ford, Extraordinary Measures.

When and Where

Saturday, March 9, 2013 at The Westin Seattle from 5:30 to 11p.m.

About Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington:

Since 1986, Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington has granted wishes to more than 5,200 children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. This year, the local chapter will grant more than 300 wishes. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family.
