Synonyms of "Yoko" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Yoko can't attend it for our annual cookout and Yoko can't make it for our annual cookout ?
A: The sentences should actually be

Yoko can't attend our annual cookout

And

Yoko can't make it to our annual cookout

Attend is more formal. I feel like we use the word attend less.

Otherwise, they're similar.

"Can't make it" has the nuance of "she wanted to come, but she can't"

We often say things like, "I wish I could make it, but I have to get up early tomorrow"

The word "attend" is more neutral. It means that she can't come, but you can't tell from the sentence whether or not she wanted to.

For example, "I'm sorry, but I won't be able to attend." We probably use it more often with people we don't know as well or for more formal events.
