Moonlight Masquerade Gala Success!

The Hewitt Young Foundations first-ever Moonlight Masquerade Gala was a huge success! Close to 200 attendees experienced the unique creativity of the art adorning Artisan Works, as everyone gathered to raise funds for the Western NY Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. These wishes enrich young children’s lives with hope, strength, and joy.

An open bar, several food stations, and a dancefloor with plenty of room to showcase some stellar dance moves kept the night lively and full of many smiles and laughter. Generous attendees tried their hand at the silent auction where items ranging from a 55’ 4K Smart TV to power tools, to date night bundles, were eye fully watched as one tried to outbid the other. Together, we drank, we ate, we danced, and we mingled.

This evening could not have been possible without the support from our charitable attendees, volunteers, local businesses and especially our generous sponsors:
