Our first Make-A-Wish dinner in Nashville this year was for six-year-old Anna. Anna wished to go to Disneyland because she loves all the Disney Princesses, so in keeping that theme at her dinner, we converted our mezzanine into a castle complete with a princess tent, where the newly crowned Princess Anna enjoyed a night with the princesses at Maggiano’s!
Anna also loves Keith Urban and Zoe 101, so we surprised her with Keith Urban concert tickets for her and her family. Several local companies donated costumes, a cake and a pair of pink cowboy boots, which she wore to the concert. One of our regulars even donated a Barnes & Noble gift card so Anna could purchase the first season of Zoe 101. How cool is that?
We also purchased some toys and other little things, but Anna’s favorite gift of the evening was the princess tent. As she opened her gifts she would take each of them in the tent and nicely put them away. The dinner was a huge success with Anna’s parents, brother and sister joining her in an amazing night.
Our team is very fortunate to have met little Anna and we are so excited to raise money for children like her. Please visit your local Maggiano’s until June 29 to help us raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation with our Star Cards and our Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish menu.
