More than 375 packed the house at Wings of Hope’s 14th annual “A Night for Miracles” gala at The Chase Park Plaza—the single largest fundraiser for the aviation charity’s Medical Relief and Air Transport Program.

Steve and Elizabeth Akre and Roger and Jan Debenport chaired the event. Y98’s Guy Phillips entertained the crowd as the evening’s celebrity auctioneer.

There was nary a dry eye in the room when Emilee Williams, a young woman who had lost the ability to walk but has been quickly recuperating thanks to the support of Wings of Hope, joined her father for the evening’s first dance as The Gateway City Big Band played “Fight Song,” by Rachel Platt.
