30 Children Ready to Enjoy Star-Studded Wishes with WWE, Make-A-Wish Foundation at WrestleMania XXVII in Atlanta
For the fourth year in the row, WWE and the Make-A-Wish Foundation are granting children’s wishes to attend WrestleMania weekend, April 1-3 in Atlanta. WWE has planned a full list of wish activities for the children, who are traveling from 18 U.S. states, Canada and Australia.
In addition to the excitement of attending WrestleMania at the Georgia Dome on April 3, the wish kids will enjoy exclusive opportunities to meet WWE Superstars and Divas, along with other celebrities, at these events:
April 1 – a private autograph session with WWE Superstars and Divas
The Georgia Aquarium and the Opera Atlanta Events Center & Nightclub are donating event space and resources to make the events possible for the 30 wish kids and their families. Lucks Food Decorating Company is donating pizza for the Saturday event featuring edible Pizza Prints™ designs of WWE Superstars.
“It’s fitting that the WWE and Make-A-Wish Foundation’s biggest wish-granting celebration happens each year at WrestleMania,” said Sue Aitchison, WWE’s Director, Community Relations. “This weekend will be full of surprises and joy for the wish kids and will undoubtedly help the families spend much-needed time together away from hospitals and medical treatments.”
At the April 2 event, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America President and Chief Executive Officer David Williams will honor Cena for granting his 200th wish in December 2010. Cena is one of only four celebrities, along with NASCAR drivers Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. and former WWE Superstar Hulk Hogan, to reach the milestone.
“The Make-A-Wish Foundation is so much better for knowing WWE Superstar John Cena,” Williams said. “He is genuinely connected to our mission, and the time John spends with a wish kid changes them both. They leave each other better than before – happier, more optimistic, filled with memories that inspire them during tough times.”
For 27 years, WWE has been one of the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s most dedicated wish granters, fulfilling hundreds of children’s wishes to meet its Superstars and Divas and attend major events such as WrestleMania.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is one of the world’s leading children’s charities, with 64 chapters in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and nearly 25,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 40 minutes and has granted more than 200,000 wishes in the United States since its inception.
