A Wish Lunch for Tariq

Tariq, 17
Crohn’s disease
I wish to have a shopping spree for college

The team at North Park Maggiano’s hosted Tariq, his family and friends at their restaurant for an unforgettable meal. Wish Kid Tariq’s favorite food is pasta so having his wish party at Maggiano’s was the perfect fit! This wish party was extremely special because it was Tariq’s wish day, meaning it was the day his wish to have a shopping spree to get ready for college was coming true.
The Maggiano’s staff provided excellent service, delicious food and a happy and exciting atmosphere as they were grateful to be a part of such a wonderful day! They provided Tariq with a goodie bag that featured his favorite food (pasta!) and various gifts that enhanced Tariq’s wish. They truly helped to make Tariq’s wish day incredible.
“It’s simply a joy and pleasure to host wish kids like Tariq, and we love Make-A-Wish.” – North Park Maggiano’s Manager
