Fortney & Weygandt has been a longtime supporter of the Make A Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana chapter and has been looking for a way to get more involved with the organization. Keri Haibach, Director of Individual & Planned Giving, came to us with a unique opportunity to sponsor a wish for a local 14 year old named Calvin, who has had a brain tumor since 2010.
Calvin’s Make A Wish team asked him what he would like his wish to be, he happily decided on a game room in his house similar to Joey and Chandler’s apartment on the TV show, Friends. He decided he wanted a pool table, shuffle board table and a flat screen TV to play his video games. The game room was finished off with a couch, bar stools and a bar table. None of this would have been possible without the help of Sears, Danny Vegh’s, Levin Furniture and GameStop. The room was renovated by Fortney & Weygandt volunteers, Make A Wish volunteers and friends and family members of Calvin’s.
We revealed the room on September 17th and are very proud to have been a part of this wish for Calvin.
