LONDON.- On the 1 October 2019, children’s charity Make-A-Wish® UK, will present ‘The Art of Wishes’ Gala, founded by renowned philanthropist and Make-A-Wish® UK Patron, Batia Ofer. The event will take place at the Royal Horticultural Halls, hosted by Make-A-Wish® UK supporter David Walliams OBE. This year’s Gala hopes to surpass the success of the inaugural 2017 event, which raised a phenomenal £2.8 million for the life-changing charity. In advance of the Gala, a showcase preview of the artworks will be open to the public at Phillips flagship gallery space on Berkeley Square from 19-20 September.

David Walliams comments: “I am honoured to host The Art of Wishes Gala once again. As a Make-A-Wish® UK supporter, I have witnessed the truly unique and wonderful work the charity does in granting life-changing wishes to children that experience an increased amount of hardship and difficulty. As host of the inaugural Gala in 2017, I witnessed the outstanding contributions from guests during the charity auction, which generates crucial funds for the charity, and I look forward to hosting another successful event this year.”
