The Binghamton Senators and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York teamed for the announcement of a wish for a local child on Wednesday night prior to the B-Sens game against Manchester. Madison Worden, a 9-year-old from Windsor, N.Y., received the ultimate surprise in a pre-game ceremony.
Madison, who is living with mitochondrial disease, learned that her wish has come true: to meet Hannah Montana, of the Disney Channel original TV series. Next month, Madison, her sister and parents will fly to Hollywood, California, to watch a taping of the show and receive “star treatment” as guests on the set, where she will meet the cast and star of Hannah Montana. The wish was arranged by the Disney Channel and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York.
Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Incorporated in 1985 and serving children throughout 15 Central New York counties, the chapter has granted nearly 1,000 magical wishes. For more information on how to volunteer, donate, or refer a child, please call Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York at (315) 475-WISH or (800) 846-WISH.
