About Our Event

Third Annual Wish Madness

Event Overview

Imagine combining Jacksonville’s finest restaurants, local craft breweries and college basketball to deliver wishes to kids who really need them – we call it Wish Madness Jax!

Wish Madness Jax is a social fundraiser targeted for sports enthusiasts with discerning palates, who enjoy the thrill of college basketball at its finest. The evening features live and silent auctions, gourmet cuisine from the area’s finest restaurants and the very best beer from local craft breweries, while guests watch basketball games on big screens throughout the room. The ultimate goal of the evening is to ensure that children with critical illnesses on the First Coast get the wishes they deserve.

We are grateful to the generosity of Mercedes-Benz of Jacksonville for opening their doors to Make-A-Wish and hosting Wish Madness Jax, and we appreciate their unwavering, continued support of this cause!
