How many times have you wished you were ten pounds thinner, four inches taller, for an aisle seat in the emergency row or that the Louboutin stillettos are available in size 9?
Some things are out of your control, but there are some wishes you can make come true–and that is helping to grant a wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition. Back in 1980 when a group of caring individuals helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted more 144,000 wishes in the United States.
So for a truly fantastic evening filled with incredible food and wine ( and a chance to meet many of the Bay Area’s top chefs) get your tickets to this worthwhile event.

Focusing on the best talents the culinary world has to offer while celebrating and supporting the powerful impact that a magical wish has on a child, the event is located in the dramatic and unique setting of Treasure Island.
