Individual Honoree: Ethie Haworth
Ethie Haworth was first introduced to the power of a wish as a wish grandmother. She was filled with joy while she watched her grandson experience the journey of hope and strength that a wish delivers. She has proudly supported Wish Ball for three years with her Saugatuck gem Teeny Tiny Toy Store and shares in the true magic of bringing joy to children as she generously donates toys to Michigan children. We hope that you will reserve your seat today and help celebrate Ethie with us!
Community Honoree: Gerald R. Ford International Airport
Gerald R. Ford International Airport has been an invaluable partner over the years, helping to create extraordinary experiences for our wish kids and families. GFIA is always prepared to spread its wings and celebrate the departure of a wish family’s journey with incredible send-offs, special escorts and many other exceptional enhancements. We can’t wait to honor this great community partner.
Corporate Honoree: Amway Corporation
Amway Corporation has been helping make wishes come true since 1998. Amway was a 2014 Leader in Joy – one of 30 community partners who were identified as game changers for our organization. They have adopted more than 20 wishes and generously host the annual wish family and volunteer holiday party in Grand Rapids. We are pleased to honor Amway at the 2017 Wish Ball – West Michigan.
Help us honor these amazing community partners.
