Capture the excitement at this exclusive fundraising event hosted by James Laurinaitis, #55 Linebacker of the St. Louis Rams. Sports broadcaster, Kara Henderson Snead will emcee as Rams players, cheerleaders and Rampage work as celebrity waiters competing to collect the most tips in support of Make-A-Wish. Rams fans receive an exclusive opportunity to meet and greet their favorite players, offering tips for autographs and photographs, while making wishes come true for local children battling life-threatening illnesses.

In celebration of Make-A-Wish Missouri’s 30 Years of Wishes, this event will also include an exclusive VIP Party Lounge for select sponsors, followed by an “Extreme Wishes” live auction and dinner. Wish children of the chapter’s past and present whose lives have forever been changed by a wish will share inspirational stories and help the Rams to make more wishes come true.

The Rams Celebrity Night of Wishes has been a time-honored St. Louis tradition since 1995. The continued support from the Rams organization combined with the generosity of their fans has resulted in raising over one million dollars in support of Make-A-Wish Missouri’s mission­­.

Thanks to the Rams commitment, this NIGHT OF WISHES will fund the wishes of nearly 60 local children battling life-threatening illnesses. The wishes granted are powerful, life-changing events that give wish kids hope, strengthen families and bring communities together.
