Granting Wishes and Sharing Hope

Springtime in New Mexico brings warmer weather and a heartwarming tradition: the annual Wine and Wishes Gala. The 11th Annual Wine and Wishes Gala is set to take place on Friday, May 3 at Sandia Resort and Casino, beginning at 7 p.m. The goal of this event is to raise enough money to grant 25 wishes for kids across the state. Guests can look forward to wine tasting, a silent auction, and more. This year holds special significance for Parnall Law Firm, as we are proud to be the presenting sponsor, standing by the Gala’s mission to grant life-changing wishes for children battling critical illnesses.

In an interview with KRQE News, Bert Parnall expressed, “It’s a cause we are deeply committed to. Our mission as the law firm, Parnall Law, is fighting for justice for the wrongfully hurt. So we deeply feel the injustice of a child battling a critical illness.” He adds, “We’re not doctors, but we’re lawyers. So we can’t heal, but we can bring hope.”

The impact of these wishes can be seen through the recent experience of Wish Kid Ty Valles Bell, who went on a shopping spree at the mall, complemented by a luxurious limousine ride. These initiatives serve as beacons of hope for kids like Ty who are navigating unimaginable challenges. Any opportunity to bring a smile to their face is one worth taking.

Attorney Bert Parnall and the entire team at Parnall Law Firm are dedicated community partners, supporting various charitable and local organizations. Our firm’s unwavering commitment is part of what distinguishes Parnall Law. We recognize the privilege we hold in being able to make a difference and understand the profound impact our efforts can have on transforming lives for the better. Partnering with the advocates of Make-A-Wish® New Mexico was a natural choice for us.

With the Gala drawing nearer, anticipation is high and tickets are in demand. While availability may be limited, there remains an opportunity for individuals to join in and contribute to this worthy cause. Those interested in participating are encouraged to visit, where they can secure their tickets and explore additional ways to join us in fulfilling wishes.

We take great pride in our role as the presenting sponsor of this event, alongside the unwavering dedication of organizers and volunteers. The Wine and Wishes Gala stands as a testament to the power of collective action in bringing about positive change. Let’s continue to make a difference in the lives of children and families facing adversity.
