Event Information

Event Info:

Dishes and Wishes (formerly known as Night of the Iguana) was one of the first fundraising events for Make-A-Wish in Tampa Bay. Originally held at the Green Iguana Bar and Grille in Ybor City, the event was both fun and appealing, and created quite a buzz in the community!

As the event grew, so did the need for a larger location. The event is now an enticing food sampling experience involving the top restaurants in Tampa Bay all represented in one desirable location.

With a vast array of tantalizing foods, signature drinks, and incredible entertainment, Dishes and Wishes, is the one of the best parties in Tampa Bay!


Upon arriving at the TPepin's Hospitality Centre, guests will be escorted into a lavish ballroom and an outside terrace full of activity. They will be able to meet and mingle with other guests ready to have an amazing Friday evening! Throughout the night, 15 of Tampa Bay’s most renowned restaurants are serving samples of some of their tastiest dishes. While bands play, people enjoy dancing, live auctions,and open bar....all while granting the wishes of children in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, and Hernando counties!
