Blue Lightning

Blue Lightning is the story of Joseph, an 11-year old Make-A-Wish® boy with Hodgkin's lymphoma who wishes for a basketball court in his backyard. Joseph is a huge NBA fan along with his brother Anthony. While following Joseph's story, an unexpected donor with ties to the NBA surprises the brothers with an experience of a life time. When the court is finished, they unveil it at a reveal party along with 100+ people in the community to share in Joseph's joy. This story gives us a front row seat to what it's like to plan a wish at the Make-A-Wish® office in Suffolk County, New York.

  • On Saturday, January 20th, the Long Island Royals 14U Hockey Team hosted their 3rd annual Make-A-Wish Fundraiser! This year, the team rallied the community to help grant the #wish of 6 year-old James from #Holbrook. James, who happens to love hockey, was excited to meet the players who are making his wish to visit the Disney Aulani Resort in #Hawaii come true. The team of boys welcomed James as part of their team. When James arrived, he had his own stall in the locker room with his very own LI Royals jersey, he watched warm-ups from the bench, and did the honor of dropping the puck at center ice. We are so proud to partner with these players who truly understand the meaning of #teamwork both on and off the ice. Our sincerest thanks to the Long Island Royals 14U hockey team, Superior Ice Rink, the wonderful Sue Kav who organized the event, our friends from Chick-fil-A Commack who donated their services this past Saturday, and everyone who showed their support to James and his family.
