On November 19, 2016, guests gathered at the Mountaineer Racetrack, Casino and Resort to celebrate Make-A-Wish® at the annual gala held in Morgantown, WV.

This year's gala theme was Lights, Camera, Wishes. The ballroom was filled with red and black tables with filmstrip runners and consisted of a wine tasting, dinner, live entertainment and numerous auctions. Once guests were seated, the Caseyettes of the Casey Sisters Dance Academy provided pre-dinner entertainment. During dinner, Regional Manager Leandra Clovis spoke about the mission of Make-AWish, and local wish kid, Joey, gave a speech about his wish to attend the NCAA Championship basketball game. After dinner, guests danced to their favorite songs, perused the silent auction items and took part in a live auction featuring sports tickets, jewelry and more.
