WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina hosted Wish Upon a Chef at UNCW’s Burney Center to raise money.

WECT’s Jon Evans emceed the event.

The event had a silent auction where guests bet on several items, including bottles of wine and vacations to Portugal. Guest judges were also present and attendees enjoyed appetizers, entrees and desserts made by guest chefs.

The organizers maintained their mission is what is most important, not the money, and their founding principle is to grant the wish of every eligible child.

“The delivery of a wish is something that you cannot ever forget and I encourage everybody to join us to see that smile,” Chris Winter with Make-A-Wish said.
