Dear Grant a Wish Classic,

We are moved by the generosity expressed by your commitment to the children with life-threatening illnesses. You are a valuable partner to Make-A-Wish, selflessly sustaining our mission to offer the gift of a wish to a deserving child. On behalf of Make-A-Wish® Georgia and the children we are priveleged to serve, it gives me great pleasure to thank you for your contribution of $2,186.00 in support of Grant a Wish Classic.

Five-year-old Nathan suffers from Wilms' tumor, a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children. After seeing a commercial for the Disney Cruise Line, Nathan fell in love with the idea of sailing the ocean blue with Mickey and friends. Nathan received his most heartfelt wish when he set sail to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream along with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and many more of his favorite Disney characters. Nathan was bursting with excitement during the entire trip and his mom loved the kindness and compassion their entire family received during his wish experience. Nathan declared his wish, "the best vacation ever!" This was an experience Nathan and his family will never forget!

You are making these events happen, and your generosity creates amazing responses. The contribution received will help enable a wish child moments of hope, strength and joy. Those moments will include huge grins, squeals of euphoria, long hugs, tears of happiness and vivid memories that will not fade with time.

Most appreciatively,

Jaylie Welch
Manager of Community Events
