Kyle's Make A Wish - Coming Next Weekend to a Ballpark Near You!
Clearly I have been remiss in my obligation of keeping you up with my family’s goings on over here on ‘Bahamas’. I wish I had the time to keep up with things here AND keep up with posting things over at EverydayChildhood, but somehow I don’t have time for even real-life obligations and I’m still only getting an average of five hours sleep at night. I could use a lesson in balancing. But then the lesson would probably be, like, a webinar and I would prepay for it and put it on my calendar and then be sitting in the Starbucks drive thru waiting on my order of a venti caffeine mainline drip on my way to a rare girlfriend lunch date before I realized that the webinar is half over.
But this post is not about me. Oh no.
Kyle has waited a year for his Make A Wish. He has been very patient. His Wish was “to be a real Dbacks baseball player,” and the Dbacks surprised him this week with the news that his Wish will be granted next week.
For our Phoenix area friends: Kyle’s Wish will take place over the weekend of April 27-28, 2013 (next weekend). It will culminate in a Sunday afternoon at Chase Field, when he will spend a bit of time on field and the rest of the time with his family behind home plate (sweet seats!). I don’t know that he will be invited to participate in any special activities or be publicly acknowledged during this game, but either way you don’t want to miss witnessing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. PLEASE nab a ticket and join us at this game to watch Kyle have his one true Wish granted!
Incidentally, that day is also a Parkinson’s Disease/Muhammad Ali Center fundraiser. Check out THIS LINK to find discounted tickets for this game (Colorado Rockies @ Dbacks) and help Diamondbacks Charities support the endeavors at St. Joe’s/Barrows/Mohammad Ali Center. Kyle’s grandpa was diagnosed with Parkinson’s years ago, and the timing of their Dbacks fundraiser couldn’t be more perfect!
