Love Promise: Danton’s Wish
Wilsonville Subaru partners with Make-A-Wish Oregon
At Wilsonville Subaru, we know that love means being more than a car company. That is why we are teaming up with Make-A-Wish® Oregon to help make local wishes come true.
This summer, we will make a donation to Make-A-Wish for every new Subaru sold. That donation will directly support the 267 children in our community who are battling a critical illness and are waiting for their wish to come true right now.
We know that a wish gives children renewed strength, and brings families closer together. Let’s show our local kids in need just how far love can go.
This Spring, Wilsonville Subaru was lucky enough to be a small part in Danton’s wish. Danton is a 12 year old from Salem who is battling a form of blood cancer. Danton’s wish was to meet his favorite celebrity chef, Jacques Torres.
After being picked up by a limousine, Danton found “golden tickets” hidden throughout Wilsonville. The clues led him to the final golden ticket, which was located at Wilsonville Subaru.
Wilsonville Subaru employees lined the red carpet set up for Danton, and cheered him on as he entered the building. Waiting for him was a full “Chocolate Factory” equipped with a chocolate fountain and a variety of fresh fruit, a Subaru full of handy baking tools and the final golden ticket in the hands of General Manager Ron Owens.
The final golden ticket presented Danton with an incredible gift. His wish was granted, and he will be flying to New York City to meet his favorite chef Jacques Torres this July.
