Make-A-Wish Inspiring Hope To Transform Lives


Make-A-Wish will be hosting the third annual Help Us Help Kids Craft Beer Sampling and Food Tasting on Friday, Jan. 26, at Louie’s Grille & Liquors, located at 395 Main St. in Port Washington. Gina LoBello is once again working her magic with Louie’s Grille to bring the community together to raise funds for Make-A-Wish.

“This is such a great event,” said LoBello. “We are almost sold out.” Tickets are $65 and must be purchased online at This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy great food, great beer and great company, all for a great cause. The event is being run by Manhasset resident Gina LoBello, who successfully launched this fabulous sold-out party last year.

If you are interested in helping, donations of gift baskets or gift certificates from local vendors would be a great way to help support the event. These items can be used as raffle prizes and would be much appreciated. For more information on the event, contact LoBello at 516-662-9929.

In fiscal year 2015, they collectively touched the lives of 867 wish children and their families by granting 651 wishes of local children and facilitating 216 wish assists for children who reside in other areas, but whose wishes took place in New York.
