Eleanor: I wish to have a NYC shopping spree


“ Eleanor had the time of her life and truly enjoyed experiencing all the high fashion in NYC. ”

Ten-year-old Eleanor loves watching the show “Fashion Star” with her mom and thinking up new clothing designs. She has been living with spinal muscular atrophy but refuses to let it get her down. She remains vivacious and loves to play outside with her friends. For her wish, Eleanor decided that she wanted to go to New York City and have the ultimate shopping spree! Before Eleanor left for her big-city shopping spree, she was given an amazing send-off party.

Before leaving to go to New York City, Eleanor was able to celebrate her wish being granted with her family and friends.  She was given a mini shopping spree for her trip at Macy’s, that included the star treatment. She was able to get a mini makeover and pick out a few new outfits. Afterwards, her family and best friend were treated to Maggiano’s for dinner.

When she and her family arrived in New York City, the shopping continued. Eleanor got to add more clothes to her collection during a shopping experience of a lifetime. She was given VIP treatment at Macy's and Tiffany's, her two favorite stores. While in the big apple, she also got to go to a Broadway show and visit tourist attractions.  Eleanor had a blast seeing the Statue of Liberty and the New York Zoo.
