Maggiano’s Little Italy in Boston was transformed into a Hawaiian oasis for 17-year-old Grace, guest of honor at the recent wish send-off celebration. The teenager, who will soon be departing for her wish trip to Hawaii, enjoyed an Italian feast with her family and her wish team compliments of Maggiano’s and in celebration of the restaurant’s “Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish” promotion.
With a dining room full of Hawaiian decorations and wait staff dressed in Hawaiian shirts and leis, Grace was treated to a memorable party complete with luau dancers! Learning a few moves from the dancers gave Grace a fun taste of what is in store for her on her wish trip to the Big Island.
Thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Maggiano's Little Italy in Boston for their enthusiastic commitment to and generous support of the Make-A-Wish mission.
