Will’s Wish

Will’s Wish

Wish kid Will, his parents, and his grandma were greeted by a stretch limo that took them to their magical dinner at Maggiano's Cincinatti. They had a fantastic evening of great food and family time! Will had wished for a game room. While at dinner, Will’s family was able to tease him with a few small gifts for his new game room to make him think he was going to have to wait a little bit longer for his wish to come true. Little did Will know, back at his home Make-A-Wish was working like crazy to load and decorate his "man cave,"  complete with new furniture, a gaming chair, shelving, a game table, fridge, wall art, and even a fog machine and disco light while he was away at dinner. Many of Will's family members, neighbors and friends gathered to surprise him with his granted wish when he arrived home.

“They were treated like absolute royalty from the moment they arrived!”

Khyler’s Wish

Khyler’s Wish

A private dinner was held for wish kid Khyler, his parents and siblings, as well as grandparents, an aunt and an uncle. Since Khyler’s wish was to go to Aruba, the room was decorated in a tropical theme complete with a surfboard on the table.

“I actually tell my customers that it is my favorite time of the year, raising money for Make-A-Wish.  It’s a way to give back, just coming into work and doing a little extra.  Seeing the kids come in for their special dinners, it just makes you feel better about life.”
-Kelly Kane, server at Maggiano’s

Maddie’s Wish

Maddie’s Wish

Maddie, her family, volunteers and a Make-A-Wish staff member attended a kid's cooking class at the Maggiano's Bellevue location. Maddie participated in the class and learned how to make berry tiramisu. After the cooking class ended, Maddie and her crew enjoyed a buffet lunch together.

"It meant the world to us to have Maddie here. We were so excited to meet her and she just put a smile on all of our faces. Maddie and her family are amazing and it made all the hard work feel even more worth it. Thank you for bringing her and her family, it made my week!”
