The special event will raise funds and awareness for children battling critical illnesses in the Lowcountry and other areas of South Carolina.

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.

Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Make-A-Wish South Carolina granted 184 wishes last year, averaging to a wish every forty-eight hours.  The chapter receives funding through private donations, individuals, companies and special events.

Magnolia has been selected as one of "America's Most Beautiful Gardens" by Travel and Leisure magazine. It is the only garden honored with this distinction in South Carolina. Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia has survived the centuries and witnessed the history of the United States unfold before it from the American Revolution through the Civil War and beyond. It is the oldest public tourist site in the Lowcountry, and the oldest public gardens in America, opening its doors to visitors in 1870 to view the thousands of beautiful flowers and plants in its famous gardens.
