• Make-A-Wish Annual Breakfast to Grant Wishes to ChildrenMake-A-Wish® Northeastern California and Northern Nevada hosted their annual Wake Up For Wishes breakfast at the Sacramento Convention Center on Wednesday, November 8 to thank supporters and highlight four wishes that they granted this year. At the event they surprised two local children in big ways. Samuel, four, who battles kidney cancer, learned from retired Astronaut Stephen Robison that his wish to see a ‘real’ spaceship was coming true in January! Samuel’s wish is sponsored by the chapter founder and local business man Frank Ramos. The second child that was surprised was Dominic, 15, who battles bone cancer. His wish was granted last month to give out Thank You awards to many who helped him through the difficult journey of fighting cancer. One of the people Dominic had wished to be at his Night of Gratitude was his grandmother, Amy, from Texas. So Make-A-Wish flew her out to surprise him on stage at the breakfast. His wish was sponsored by Five Star Bank and was enhanced by Shutterfly.
