Emma’s Wish Gala Was A Success

KOVA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) with a mission to inspire hope, enhance quality of life, and contribute to health and well-being in Southwest Florida, has raised $379,075 through its inaugural Emma’s Wish Gala.

Emma’s Wish Gala was held March 9th at Talis Park Golf Club in Naples, featuring an elegant cocktail hour enchanted by a champagne fairy and statuesque electric violinist.  Guests enjoyed a delectable dinner of freshly prepared gourmet foods and a silent auction with items such as fashion, design, sports and luxury travel packages.  The evening concluded with an interactive live auction, and dancing with live music and entertainment.

Proceeds from the event support KOVA Foundation’s Emma’s Wish, which, in partnership with Lee Health Regional Cancer Center, helps grant a variety of wishes for breast cancer patients facing serious, life-threatening, or end-of-life illness. This partnership between Lee Health Regional Cancer Center and the KOVA Foundation provides the patient and family a sense of normalcy – bringing joy and comfort while creating cherished memories.

Sponsors of the Gala included KOVA Companies as a Diamond Sponsor; Bob & Kathy Brown, Lynn Hall, Chris & Valerie Wunder and Mercedes Benz of Bonita Springs and Naples as Platinum Sponsors; First Horizon as Gold Sponsor; Dean & Lisa Ganzhorn and Mike & Mary Smale as Silver Sponsors; Cogent Bank, DEX Imaging and HBK CPAs & Consultants as Silver Sponsors; Pravada as Centerpiece Sponsor; Brown & Brown as Champagne Sponsor; and Marc & Donna Kozin and First Foundation Bank as Photographer Sponsors.
