“ The power of the Las Vegas community helps make Martjin's wish come true in just three days. ”

We experience the magic our community delivers every day but for one particular child, Vegas went over the top to make his wish come true.

Fifteen-year-old Martijn traveled to Las Vegas from the Netherlands for his wish; to drive down Las Vegas Blvd in a convertible. So what did we do? We made three phone calls. 

The first call was to Jon Wolfe, a long time Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada supporter and a car aficionado. Without skipping a beat, Jon was on board. Car: Check! 

The second call was to our friends at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. There's only one way to drive the strip, and that's with a police escort. Police Escort: Check! 

And our third call was to Cashman Photo so our amazing photographer Joseph could capture this moment for Martijn and his family. Wish Moment Captured: Check! 

Oh, and just because we can, and it's Las Vegas, Elvis made an appearance! Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada was able to pull this wish together in three days with three calls. That's the power of a wish. That's the power of the Las Vegas community. #WishesMatter #WishesHappenHere
