Make-A-Wish Foundation – Power of a Wish Gala Live on Facebook (KNEKT) – Link

KNEKT took the non-profit’s premier fundraising event of the year and produced a multi-camera, full HD broadcast from the Cipriani Center NYC. KNEKT and the team lead by Kent Speakman extended the reach from 1,000 guests in attendance to the following: More than 44,000 views with 561 Reactions, 371 shares, and 190 Comments on the Facebook Live broadcast. Nigel Barker of “America’s Next Top Model” hosted the evening and the live broadcast, alongside red carpet host Melanie Specht, best known for her role in “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

More than $1,300,000 was raised that evening, and the engagement and viewership of this content was unparalleled with any other videos Make-A-Wish NYC has posted. The content was then edited and shared with mutual partner Good Amplified to extend the reach across other social channels. Please CLICK HERE to VOTE!
