February is Disney Compassion Month

A wish child meets Mickey Mouse!
The steadfast support Disney provides to Make-A-Wish® dates back to the first official wish kid, Frank “Bopsy” Salazar, whose wish was granted in 1981. In 2015, Disney and Make-A-Wish will grant its 100,000th global wish together. Last year, more than 7,000 wishes involved Disney’s help, and every year, Disney continues to enrich the lives of wish kids around the world by bringing them hope, strength and joy. 

The timeless bonds and memories Disney has created have helped kids through treatments, helped them overcome doubts and despair, and helped them feel and get better – because wishes work wonders.

  • 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.
