Event description:

This year Make-A-Wish Colorado is celebrating 40 years of granting life-changing wishes! We look forward to celebrating this milestone at our new, signature event, Whiskey, Wine & Wishes presented by PDC Energy.

Guests will enjoy great food, drinks and live music from our headliner Shane Smith & The Saints in a casual "party with a purpose" atmosphere, while raising crucial funds to grant wishes for Colorado children with critical illnesses. Your support of this event will help us grant a record number of wishes and make sure no child waits to experience the hope and joy a wish brings.  

Special guest, Peyton Manning, will be honored for his many years of wish granting support.
