Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina and Triad McDonald's Partner to Bring a Dream to Life


August 14, 2015


Triad, North Carolina

(Triad, North Carolina) August 14, 2015 – Make-A-Wish Central & Western North Carolina and Triad McDonald’s owner/ operators teamed up on Thursday, August 14 to make the wish of a 3-year-old Greensboro child come true. Aniyah, who is battling a life-threatening medical condition, will get the chance to visit Disney World® this month as part of her granted wish through the local Make-A-Wish chapter. But before she meets all the Disney® princesses she adores, the three-year-old warrior celebrated with Ronald McDonald, his friend Grimace and her family and friends on Thursday afternoon at the Greensboro McDonald’s restaurant located at Friendly Center. The celebration was the perfect send-off before Aniyah’s big trip to the happiest place on earth.

Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish  Central and Western North Carolina serves 51 counties in North Carolina from Burlington (Alamance County) to the west. The chapter has granted more than 3,500 wishes since its inception in 1985 and has never turned down a wish for an eligible child. For more information, please visit or call 1-877-677-WISH. Triad McDonald’s owner/ operators are proud to support Make-A-Wish and many other local initiatives. To learn more about this partnership, please call Ashley Watkins at 336-937-1487.
