More than 200 of South Florida’s philanthropists and supporting VIPs attended the kick-off event for the 15th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball at InterContinental Miami. Norman Wedderburn, President/CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida and Shareef Malnik, owner of The Forge restaurant and returning Gala Chair of the InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball, together announced the theme for this year’s Ball, “Imagine,” inspired by John Lennon’s influential song promoting peace and hope. Gala Host, Jack Miller, General Manger of the InterContinental Miami, graciously underwrote the entire cost of the kick-off event again this year.
