Make-A-Wish® Touches The Hearts of Maggiano’s Family

Written on July 1, 2014

Story from Tunya, Maggiano’s Operations Leadership Team Coordinator

“Sherrell is my niece. She was born with pulmonary and tricuspid atresia which required her to have three major heart surgeries very early in her life.  At the age of four, the clinic staff at Sherrell’s cardiologist office recommended her to Make-A-Wish . My niece’s wish to go to the Florida theme parks was granted shortly thereafter.. Make-A-Wish provided everything – airfare, accommodation for the family and a rental car. They were given badges so they didn’t have to wait in line, and a variety of many other accommodations and gifts.  Make-A-Wish spared no expense to make it a memorable experience. My family is truly thankful and is forever grateful for the blessing Make-A-Wish gave Sherrell.”

Story from Stephanie, Marketing Coordinator

“In 2006 my cousin, Lindsay, who suffers from sickle cell anemia and acute liver disease, had her wish granted to publish a book. Ever since she was a little girl, she loved to write. A few years prior to having her wish granted, Lindsay had written several short stories, and the book she later chose to publish started as a summer writing assignment. It turned into so much more. She has battled her way through a liver transplant and multiple surgeries to continue following her passion for writing. Now 25 years-old (with a birthday right before World Wish Day®), she continues to write and teach literature at Syracuse University where she is also a Masters candidate. I’m very proud of her. Her strength and courage fuels and reinforces my dedication to Make-A-Wish.”

Wishes really do come true and we all know someone whose life has been touched by this amazing organization. How has Make-A-Wish impacted you?

Red Wine vs White Wine

Written on June 24, 2014

We are in the midst of the world’s greatest soccer tournament, but we have a different type of score to settle: #TeamRedWine vs #TeamWhiteWine. We know there are strong feelings about one or the other, so today is the day they go up against each other. What team are you on? Watch the comments on Facebook today, you will ultimately decide.

Red Wine vs White Wine

#TeamRedWine. Red wines are the preferred choice in countries like Italy and France. These wines have rich flavors due in part to the dark red and black grapes, including their skins. In fact, the antioxidants found in the skin gives this variety heart-healthy qualities. The most popular reds are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Syrah and Zinfandel.

VS

#TeamWhiteWine. Most white wines have a light and fruity taste, but there are other varietals with a richer flavor. Just to name a few – Champagne, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier – are familiar types of white wines. Did you know that Champagne has been found to be as beneficial as cocoa?
