As the Make-A-Wish Ball founder, 22-year partner and in-kind donor, InterContinental Miami has contributed more than $9.7 million through in-kind donations to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. These donations have enabled the organization to raise more than $19.3 million, resulting in nearly 4,000 wishes being granted to children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community. On Nov. 12, the 22nd Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball’s theme is La Nuit De L’Animal (Night Of The Animal) and will again be hosted by the cause’s “3 Amigos”: Norman Wedderburn, Robert Hill and Shareef Malnik (pictured below); Events.SFla.Wish.org/MakeAWishBall16.
