“ Torren’s NYC Shopping Spree was a strong and uplifting experience. ”

Torren’s wish to have a NYC Shopping Spree started bright and early on her 15th birthday when she was picked up by a white SUV limousine. First stop, the Apple store! Torren, who was sporting a glittery tiara and a hot pink Birthday Girl sash, had a smile ear to ear while purchasing her first and very own iPad. One of her favorite parts of the day was eating lunch at Planet Hollywood in Time Square where the staff sang her “Happy Birthday”. Torren was so excited to buy new dresses and skirts for her summer wardrobe but one of her favorite purchases was a new Victoria Secret pink sweatshirt. Torren’s NYC Shopping Spree was a strong and uplifting experience. This was her first time to the Big Apple and according to Torren, an experience that she will never forget.

  • This past Monday evening, we had the honor of sharing an emotional yet extremely heartwarming evening with the incredible team at Varsity Home Service: Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. This company truly understands and values the gift of giving back to the members of their community and by doing so, they are helping to grant the wish of 7 year-old Samuel from Lake Ronkonkoma who battles a severe seizure disorder. Samuel, who loves Woody and Buzz Lightyear, has made his most heartfelt wish to meet his favorite characters at the magical Walt Disney World Resorts. Due to the incredible support of Varsity Home Service, Samuel's wish will be coming true this upcoming September! Varsity Home Service also presented former wish recipient, Kyle, with a beach terrain wheelchair so that he can comfortably enjoy time at the beach with his family and friends. Thank you to our friends at Mary's Pizza & Pasta of Islip Terrace for hosting such a beautiful event.
