Al and Nancy Malnik hosted the Make-A-Wish Annual Garden Party recently at their Palm Beach County oceanfront estate, complete with light bites, champagne and music.

The private party celebrated  Make-A-Wish Southern Florida’s InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball, which will take place in November. In 2014, the ball raised a record high of $2.5 million, which helped grant 500 wishes.

Shareef Malnik, gala chairman and owner of The Forge Restaurant, announced this year’s theme: mythology. Attendees included InterContinental Miami General Manager Robert Hill, Make-A-Wish President and CEO Norman Wedderburn, and the Forge Restaurant Vice President Maxwell Blandford. — Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz
