"Yacht Blast for Kids" was founded in 2009 with the intent to provide Make-A-Wish children, along with their families, an opportunity to spend an afternoon in Milwaukee's harbor, aboard a yacht. With the support of yacht owners, corporate sponsors & volunteers, this event provides wish kids a day to be just kids while raising funds & community awareness for the Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, an organization that enriches the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The impact a wish experience has on children, families, sponsors & event communities has been life-changing for all those involved. In its seventh year, "Yacht Blast for Kids" has granted over 85 wishes through generous donations of time, talent and treasures from Southeastern Wisconsin. The day's events feature some of the finest yachts - and kids ready to break through the waves! The night is topped-off at the VIP After Blast Party.
