Alexis’ Send-off Party to Paris

Alexis, 14
I wish to go to Paris

The Maggiano’s Scottsdale location went above and beyond to create an extraordinary party to honor Alexis and his wish being granted. Greeting Alexis, his family and friends was a large sign with his picture welcoming him to Maggiano’s. All of the serves donned Make-A-Wish t-shirts and buttons with Alexis’ photo on them.
The entire experience was wonderful for Alexis and his family. The staff decorated a private room that included balloons and a table covered with candy. The staff presented him with gifts which included a soccer jersey, which is his favorite sport, and even gave him a signed chef hat! The party ended with a custom soccer themed cake for him and his family to enjoy.

“This is such a special night for us, after all that Alexis has been through. We are grateful that we are able to celebrate here with family and friends, it means so much to us.” – Wish mom Yadira
