‘John’ ~ 8 years old boy
To go to an Indians Game and stay in a hotel.
John was nominated because he works very hard in school, cares about others around him and always does the right thing. He never complains and works hard to accomplish his goals. John’s parents both have serious medical conditions that have greatly limited their financial resources and ability to provide for their children. Due to these hardships the family lives in severe poverty and has to have additional supports. John and his siblings are currently living in the care of relatives.
Giving John an opportunity to experience a professional baseball game played by his favorite team and stay in a hotel will bring much needed joy, allow him to make some positive memories with his family, and show him that his community values him.
