Dream Kid V.I.P.s at Charlotte Touchdown Club
On Friday, May 10, four Dream Kids (three were friends from Charlotte’s Ronald McDonald House) were treated to a Dream On 3 “Day Dream” – a V.I.P. experience at the Charlotte Touchdown Club luncheon featuring guest speaker, and former NY Giants running back, Tiki Barber. After spending his entire career with the Giants (10 seasons!) Barber has gone on to become a television broadcaster, author, actor, and now a Broadway star.
When offered the opportunity to meet Barber, the four children jumped at the chance!
The Meet & Greet “Deets”
Prior to the luncheon, the children were given the chance to have a private meet and greet with the former NFL star. All were thrilled to shake hands and obtain an autographed poster. One of the children, Michael Wayne O’Neill (an upcoming Dream On 3 Dream Kid), had done his research! He had watched a documentary on Barber and his twin brother Ronde (also a former NFL player) AND he had watched a recording of Super Bowl XXXV.
Needless to say… Michael was ready for an interview! Tiki was amazed! The details and facts Michael knew impressed the NFL star so much so that he even shared a secret with Michael that he had never shared before…
We’re Thrilled About Our New Relationship
Dream On 3 is thrilled to add Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte to our list of Day Dream partners and we are excited to work with them more in the future. Our Day Dream program coordinates with local healthcare and family support organizations to select qualified participants to be a part of local Day Dream experiences that always includes *special* V.I.P. treatment.
Seriously, these kiddos deserve their special experience… don’t you think?
