Xavier Athletics/SAAC to Raise Money for Make-A-Wish Foundation During XU-Richmond Game Saturday
Feb. 23, 2012
CINCINNATI- Xavier Athletics and the XU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) have teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant a child with a life-threatening medical condition a wish. SAAC members will be at the Xavier men's basketball game against Richmond Saturday, Feb. 25 collecting donation to help fund three-year-old Joel's wish to go to Disney World.
He loves pretend like he’s a pirate like Jake from Disney’s Jake and the Neverland Pirates®, so it was not surprising when Wish-Granting Volunteers asked him “What his one true wish would be?” He asked to visit his favorite characters. Joel and family will be traveling to Walt Disney World® Resorts in Florida this summer. Not only will he get to meet Mickey and all of his friends, but he and Luke will get the Pirate League make-over at the parks; turning them into Scallywags. Joel will get to experience all the excitement the parks have to offer, and meet his hero Jake.
