Wish kids at Wish NightIn 1994, Les Weil and Jodi Peck put forth extraordinary effort to create Make-A-Wish Wisconsin's first-ever gala. The event was founded in memory of their daughter Kelly Weil, who had recently passed away after a long battle with bone cancer. Now 29 years later, Wish Night has grown into an annual highlight of the fundraising calendar.

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin's mission is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Wish Night helps fund the wishes of more than 100 children and we need your help to make that happen!

The Wish Night gala features powerful storytelling and many opportunities to make an investment in a child's future, for their hope, strength and joy.

Hope starts with you. Donate now.


Mike and Bridget Zimmerman, Co-Chairs

Mike and Bridget Zimmerman have been involved with Make-A-Wish for over 20 years, dating back to Bridget's first job out of college as the Volunteer Coordinator for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. For Bridget this was her dream job. And since then, Make-A-Wish has become the Zimmerman family's favorite philanthropic effort.  

Mike and Bridget live in Franklin with their 4 children, Paige (18), Andrew (17), Jack (15) and Olivia (11) and their Teddy Bear dog, Finn, who they met and had to have at Wish Night 2016!

These include the Milwaukee Wave, the Milwaukee Milkmen, The Rock Sports Complex, a collegiate baseball franchise located in Indiana, the Ballpark Commons development in Franklin, and more. ROC stands for "Return on Community," a goal which informs each and every endeavor undertaken by the organization.
