SSHHHH…It’s a Surprise
Hally’s First Time in Disney World
is sure to be Amazing!

Syracuse, N.Y. – Wish Kid Hally, age 7, will be traveling with her family to Walt Disney World Resort for the first time. Her wish to visit the Magic Kingdom is finally coming true and M&T Bank, an Adopt-A-Wish® sponsor, will be at the announcement to share in the excitement and are thrilled to help make wishes come true.

When Wish Granter Bob Lewis asked Hally, “why would she like to go to Disney World”; Hally responded by saying, “Because I’ve never been there and I would like to see the Magic Kingdom.”

On Wednesday, October 16, 2013 Hally’s wish will be revealed to her at a party just for her that is being hosted at Red Lobster, located on Route 31, at 4:00 p.m. “We are so excited for Hally and know that she will have the time of her life exploring at that is amazing in Disney World and hope that she and her family enjoy every second of their trip,” noted Diane Kuppermann, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish® Central New York.
