Birthday Wish Provided By The Wishing Well
Jordan Harris of Grayson County celebrated his 11th birthday with his mom, sister, Courtney, his favorite teacher and friends. Two of Jordan’s new friends, Ryan Klement and Cheryl Herriage from The Wishing Well were there to help Jordan celebrate and to watch Jordan’s birthday wish come true.
Jordan’s favorite pastime is playing video games; he especially likes The Legend of Zelda series by Nintendo. His wish was for a new video game system, new TV and a bedroom makeover. The Wishing Well made sure Jordan got everything he wished for. Jordan received new bedroom furniture, a new video game system, a new TV, a boom chair and a gift card to purchase any video game he wanted.
“We couldn’t have done it without the help of Best Buy and Knights Furniture, “said Ryan Klement. “Best Buy employees, Angelica Kluss and store manager, Kevin McMullen coordinated the wish. Eddie, Josh and Chris went out of their way getting all the equipment delivered and installed. They did an incredible job,” stated Ryan. “The employees at Knights Furniture delivered and assembled all of Jordan’s new furniture. Sales associate, Beth Cenero, coordinated the wish at Knights with the help of Knights Furniture President, David Gunn. They were great,” explained Ryan.
The Wishing Well would like to extend a special thank you to Best Buy and Knights Furniture for all they did to make sure that Jordan’s wish was fantastic! Such generosity allows The Wishing Well to continue to provide wishes for critically ill children in the area. These wishes help to give the children and their families a wonderful respite from the world of hospital visits and discomfort; for a brief time they can leave that life behind and enjoy a life where dreams really do come true.
