Make-A-Wish South Carolina and Magnolia Plantation and Gardens are proud to once again partner for a spectacular charity event. Wishes in Bloom will be held on May 20, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the historic Carriage House of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Guests are invited to join the organizations at the stunning venue, nestled along the scenic Ashley River, in their best garden party attire for an unforgettable evening of music, dining and charitable giving.
This year, Make-A-Wish and Magnolia are excited to share with attendees the life-changing impact wishes have – for all involved in the wish granting process. During the program, guests will discover the deeply moving and impactful way lives are altered by following the wish experience of wish kid, Jose, a Goose Creek child who recently received his wish for a professional drum set while at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
More evening highlights include guest speakers and wish family testimonials, fantastic dishes by prominent Lowcountry chefs, fantastic auctions, and musical entertainment by Emerald Empire Band.
