In 2010, we granted Carlo's wish to give back! #ThrowbackThursday

Throwback Thursday
This wish kid's party wish was granted back in 2010. Not just any party but a celebration of our 1,800th wish! Read more...

What better way to celebrate our 1,800th wish than to have a party! 

When 15-year-old Carlo’s Wish Granters returned the paperwork on his wish and it read that he wanted to give back it spoke volumes about Carlo’s heart and generous spirit. Speaking about Carlo, his Wish Granters said, “Carlo has a big heart and wants to give back to others,” and “this wish means so much to him regardless of other things he wanted, like trips, PS3, to meet President Obama; he said that this was his ultimate desire.” This is pretty amazing stuff for a then 14-year-old going through such a difficult time.

With the help of the Wish Department, Carlo’s wish to give back became a reality when they helped him plan a party to thank his friends and family for their endless support, and there is no better place to have a party like that than at “LIFE, The Place To Be”! The day proved to be a huge success with games, arcades, laser tag, food, cake and the fun didn’t stop there.
