Jonathan's Wish to go on a Shopping Spree

Jonathan is a 16-year-old who wished to go on a shopping spree! He had an amazing day with his Make-A-Wish volunteers and family. Jonathan was accompanied by his parents, siblings, brother-in-law, and girlfriend. A limousine picked them up from their home the morning of September 27th.

The first stop for Jonathan and his family was the Grand Bohemian! Employees laid-out a red carpet for Jonathan and were there to greet him when he arrived. They made a special breakfast menu in his honor, and the chef made a dessert with his favorite soccer player on it for the buffet. The chef even brought Jonathan a personalized guest jacket and asked for his help in the kitchen!

Afterwards, Jonathan and his family headed to the Florida Mall for a shopping spree! H&M was the first stop, followed by Journeys and United World Soccer. The staff at United World Soccer made Jonathan his own Orlando City Soccer jersey featuring his last name and favorite number while he was at the store!

Next, the staff at PacSun, Jonathan’s favorite store, helped him pick-out the coolest clothes. Jonathan also shopped at Brookstone, Macy’s, Champs, GameStop, and a handful of other stores. He and his family will treasure the memory of this day and their time spent together.
