Media Advisory - A Wish for Two Brothers

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada and Best Buy Grant an Entertainment Wish to Two Local Brothers.

TORONTO, Dec. 16 /CNW/ - You are invited to join us: On Thursday December 17th at 7:00am, Best Buy (32900 South Fraser Way, Sevenoaks Shopping Center, Abbotsford) will generously open the doors of their new store, one hour early for Justin and Brayden Church, 13-year-old and 10-year-old brothers suffering from Hypertrophic Cardio Myopathy, for a once in a lifetime experience. Justin and Brayden's wish is sponsored in part by Best Buy. Representatives from Children's Wish and Best Buy will be in attendance to provide the brothers assistance with deciding on their choice of electronics. Justin, Brayden, their mother and father, along with their little sister Madelyn, will arrive bright and early at 7:00am in a limo courtesy of Andrew's Limo, to Best Buy which is open just for them. After weeks of excitement and enthusiastic discussions during multiple trips back and forth to the hospital, the boys came to an agreement that the perfect wish would be something that the whole family could enjoy together, at home. Justin and Brayden concluded that their heartfelt wish was one of shared entertainment. The boys will make their final selection electronic gadgets and gizmos on Thursday morning.

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada

Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to 15,000 children and their families.

This year, the Foundation expects to grant 1,000 new wishes as it commemorates 25 years of service across Canada. The Foundation has never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family.

The Foundation is a grassroots charity with chapters in every province and territory. For information on Children's Wish, log onto
