The W.I.S.H. Society


Women Inspiring Strength and Hope


Each year, Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina’s W.I.S.H. Society honors an elite selection of local women for the inspiring professional and philanthropic roles they play. Utilizing their talents, compassion and leadership qualities, Honorees in the Charlotte and Triad communities join forces with Make-A-Wish® to raise funds to grant the wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Among the Honorees, the woman who raises the most, granting additional wishes, is named the W.I.S.H. Society Woman of the Year.



Guests may purchase tickets to attend the 2017 W.I.S.H. Society Luncheon and Awards Presentation taking place on Tuesday, November 14 at the Old Town Club. The Luncheon is a grand celebration of each woman’s accomplishments and the magical wishes granted by Honorees’ collective benevolent efforts.



About the Society


Society Honorees and Alumnae benefit from networking with incredible, like-minded women. They inspire others to make a difference in the lives of local wish-children. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. It’s more than just a nice thing - its reach extends far beyond a single event, or moment in time. Wish kids, parents, medical professionals, volunteers, and others say that wish experiences can change the lives of everyone involved, forever.
