The Make-A-Wish Foundation, a staple in South Florida’s charity scene, has paired with rock legend Lenny Kravitz for its annual Make-A-Wish Ball.

This year’s gala, held at the InterContinental Miami Hotel at 100 Chopin Plaza holds no bars in merging music with philantrophy.

The ball is chaired by one of Miami’s most famous charitable couple.

Shareef Malnik, the owner of The Forge Restaurant, will chair the charity auction on Saturday, November 4, while his wife, Gabrielle Anwar acts as emcee.

Alisan Porter, winner of NBC’s “The Voice,” will perform.

The theme of the ball is “mystical music box” which is befitting, considering the gala’s line-up of performances by Snoop Dogg and Lenny Kravitz.

This year’s ball is inspired by “enchantment, majestic animals and fantasy” so it makes sense that the RSVP reads elegant event attire is required.

Guests can indulge in cocktails at an open bar while supporting children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.

The gala’s official after-party will be at E11EVEN MIAMI courtesy of the the InterContinental® Miami Make-A-Wish Nightclub. Guests will be treated to a runway fashion show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue Brickell City Centre.

You can buy a ticket for $125 in advance for the Nightclub or pay $150 at the door. If you already bought a ticket to the ball, your entrance is free.

The ball runs from 7 pm to 9 pm.
