Make-A-Wish’s Second Wish of the Season

FBLA is a media partner Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles. We will be bringing you stories all season long about the children the organization assists.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Los Angeles celebrated the second wish of the 2010 Season of Wishes® campaign on Friday, November 26 at The Americana at Brand in Glendale with 14-year-old Matthew Winward from San Clemente, CA who wished to learn how to make sushi at the Sushi Academy in Los Angeles. The celebration was a joined effort between the Los Angeles and Orange County & Inland Empire chapters who worked together to bring greater awareness to the foundation’s goal to grant an unprecedented number of wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. After the event, Matthew, and the crowd, were treated to a sushi making demonstration by two sushi chefs from Katsuya restaurant in Glendale.

Matthews’s wish is one of the hundreds of wishes granted to children with life threatening medical conditions throughout November and December as part of Season of Wishes. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles hopes to bring holiday joy to the Los Angeles community as it watches a child’s wish come true right in front of its eyes. Please visit www.wishla.org for more information about the 2010 campaign.
