A wish has the power to change a child’s mental state, provide desperately-needed respite for a family, and allow the child’s and his/her family to experience a sense of normalcy. 

This sensational fashion event features exceptional food and wine, a marvelous vendor village where guests can shop from a variety of boutiques featuring the latest fashionable finds, make-up artists and jewelry designers. As you stroll the campus, take part in our ultimate fashion swap, amazing raffles, and opportunities to bid on silent auction creations. To top it off, enjoy the elegant fashion show presented by FIDM.
