Black Ties & Zories Wish Night at the Hyatt Regency Saipan

(Press Release) —  Aug. 25, 1988 marked the start of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Guam and CNMI.

On Nov. 9, 2018, the local chapter will celebrate its 30th anniversary at the annual Black Ties & Zories Wish Night at the Hyatt Regency Saipan.  The evening celebrates 30 years of wish granting for the islands’ children and transforming lives, one child at a time.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with cocktail hour, followed by a four-course dinner service including musical live entertainment by talented JJ Concepcion. Through stories, entertainment, on-site raffles, Best Zories contest, delectable dishes, and good company, the 2018 Wish Night is set to be a memorable evening celebrating our history and charting our course for the future, to achieve the foundation’s vision of granting wishes for every eligible child for many years to come.  

“As is tradition, we ask that all in attendance dress in formal attire and zories as a tribute to our wish kids.  This small gesture stands to remind us that our wish kids often live very adult-like lives enduring  grown-up  situations related to their medical conditions, compromising their ability to be normal everyday kids. 

“Please join us for our Black Ties & Zories Wish Night on Nov. 9.  Tickets are available at the Hyatt Regency Saipan, Naked Fish Bar & Grill, Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan and Gold’s Gym Saipan. Please call 483-4117, 285-6175 for more information or email”.
