We are pleased to invite you to the Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley 2013 Wish Ball. The 2013 Wish Ball — Friday, April 26th, at DoubleTree Hotel in Tarrytown — will honor DGC Capital Contracting Corporation & Joseph Capobianco for their service and dedication to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

You can help make wishes come true by being part of our largest fundraising event of the year by purchasing a sponsorship, tickets, Wish tickets and/or a journal ad.

2013 Wish Ball - An Evening of Wishes

DGC Capital Contracting Corporation has been a force for good in the community for years. Through the Fulfilling a Dream Foundation, an organization established by DGC Capital, it has helped provide scholarships for students with limited abilities to pursue higher education. Over the past several years, DGC Capital has adopted several wishes and has regularly sponsored our Walk & 5K Run For Wishes® and annual Wish Ball events. During that time, it has raised over $100,000 to help make wishes come true. Recently the company has taken its community philanthropic support to yet another level with the election of its President and CEO Gerry Ryan to the Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley Board of Directors. We know he will be a star among many in fulfilling the dreams of our Wish Kids for years to come.

Joseph Capobianco embodies the essence of Make-A-Wish® and what it takes to bring hope, strength and joy to the Wish Kids he serves. He is a trained Wish Granter and one of the leading fundraisers each year for our Walk and 5K Run for Wishes® event. Joe works for the YES Network and is our Chapter’s go-to guy in providing Yankee Stadium experiences to our Wish Kids and their families throughout the baseball season. Even with his everyday obligations at the YES Network, he never fails to contact our Chapter with Wish Kid opportunities like game tickets, catered suites, and chances for kids to attend youth clinics at the stadium. Each and every one of these treasured gifts greatly enhances the wish experience of the Hudson Valley Wish Kids waiting for their one true, heartfelt wish. Joe is our guardian angel in keeping wishes alive for many of our Wish Kids.

We hope you will join us in acknowledging these phenomenal honorees. Did you know that a wish is granted every 40 minutes across the US? Right now, we are working on more than 145 wishes in the Hudson Valley region.

During these tough economic times, we are especially grateful for your support in carrying out our mission to bring hope, strength and joy to children who need it most.
