Capture the excitement at this exclusive fundraising event hosted by James Laurinaitis, #55 Linebacker of the St. Louis Rams. Sports broadcaster, Kara Henderson Snead will emcee as Rams players, cheerleaders and Rampage work as celebrity waiters competing to collect the most tips in support of Make-A-Wish. Rams fans receive an exclusive opportunity to meet and greet their favorite players, offering tips for autographs and photographs, while making wishes come true for local children battling life-threatening illnesses.
This event will also include an exclusive VIP Party Lounge for select sponsors, a live auction and dinner. Wish kid Stephen, 18, battling cancer will share his inspirational story about how his life has been impacted by his wish to be a University of Michigan football team recruit for a day. His story was featured as a part of the ESPN My Wish series. Earlier this summer, St. Louis Rams player Jake Long surprised Stephen that his wish would be granted.
The Rams Night of Wishes has been a time-honored St. Louis tradition since 1995. The continued support from the Rams organization combined with the generosity of their fans has resulted in raising over one million dollars in support of Make-A-Wish Missouri’s mission.
Thanks to the Rams commitment, this year’s Night of Wishes will fund the wishes of nearly 60 local children battling life-threatening illnesses. Granted wishes are powerful,
life-changing events that give wish kids hope, strengthen families and bring communities together.
