Daniel is an avid video gamer and computer junkie. He could list off his favorite video games for hours – he knows every game out there! For Daniel, video games have provided him with a distraction from his battle with cancer.

Daniel’s wish was a particularly special event because we celebrated his wish in our conference room with the support of local and national Make-A-Wish sponsors along with our tech savvy IT specialist, Shawn! Blue Bunny helped fund Daniel’s wish and provided ice cream for the big event. Our conference room was packed with donated ice cream and pizza from Blue Bunny and Beau Jos along with Blue Bunny representatives, staff members, and Daniel and his 6 siblings. The day was filled with laughter and smiles by Daniel, his family, and our sponsors.

Wells Enterprises, Inc. signature brand, Blue Bunny, is a national sponsor to Make-A-Wish. Every year, Blue Bunny donates ice cream to wish events throughout the United States. Last year they kicked off their 100 Wishes for 100 Years campaign and donated ice cream to 100 wishes! They also donate money each year to help Make-A-Wish grant wishes! This year, Blue Bunny is helping sponsor two wishes in Colorado, including Daniel’s.

Blue Bunny’s mission is not just to make great ice cream, but to also make people smile and set the stage for memories to unfold. Today at Make-A-Wish Colorado we saw both of these things!

“This is not only my wish but a real dream come true,” said wish kid, Daniel. “I have wanted to build a gaming computer since I was a little kid!”

The Make-A-Wish Colorado IT specialist, Shawn, helped Daniel craft his special wish and custom gaming system. The day was filled with smiles as Daniel’s wish came true and sponsors watched on in support.

“It is impressive that he wished to build a computer. He is so tech savvy” said Blue Bunny Representative, Bob.

It was a special day in the office to see so much support and happiness all around. We are very grateful for all of our sponsors and even more amazed by the time they dedicate to making kids smile! Currently, Daniel and his family are playing games on his new computer and enjoying ice cream and pizza donated by generous Make-A-Wish sponsors.
