Make-A-Wish San Diego’s Wine & Wishes gala raised a record-breaking $825,000 (and counting). The joy-themed event was held at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar and raised funds to grant more than 80 future wishes to children with critical illnesses in San Diego. Make-A-Wish San Diego Board Champions Lisa Paul-Hill and Dustin Cano led the charge for this year’s event, and co-emcees included Steven Luke, news anchor with NBC 7 San Diego, and wish kid Julia. More than 325 guests attended the event, which included a successful live auction featuring world-renowned surf legend Rob Machado. Make-A-Wish San Diego board member Tiffany Scarborough and her husband Terry Beck pledged $100,000 to kick off the Fund-A-Wish paddle raise.
