The black-tie-optional event is hosted by the Elderly Wish Foundation, the nonprofit organization that grants wishes to seniors with terminal or life-threatening illnesses.
This year’s sponsors and gift donors include Southwest and Spirit airlines, both of which have donated roundtrip airfare – Spirit tickets to a three-day, two-night stay at the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas, plus dinner and tickets to a headliner show. The package also includes a Sundance Helicopter ride for two to see the night lights over Las Vegas.
Other gifts include a stay at a condominium in Maui, Hawaii, dinner for eight in a private home on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco, a two-night package for two to Disneyland, an ocean view suite at the Monterey Plaza Hotel, including Monterey Bay Aquarium tickets, a hot-air balloon ride over the Napa Valley, lunch on the Napa Wine Train, a seat on a private plane for a view of the Delta, and family fun packages to the San Francisco Academy of Science, Cartoon Museum, Lawrence Hall of Science, Lindsay Museum, Railroad Museum and Scandia.
