At the office of Dr. Guri Dhaliwal, we believe strongly in giving back to the community that has given us so much over the years. Each year, our San Ramon DDS (DMD is an equal dental degree) selects numerous projects to support that are reflective of our dedication to service. Our office has collected Halloween candy for the troops, sponsored school auctions and education funds, and Dr. Dhaliwal even volunteers his time at the Berkeley Free Clinic once a month. This year, in addition to our traditional support of local schools and youth sports, we are sponsoring the following events which hold a special meaning for us.
Dear Family & Friends,
As many of you know, I have a personal connection with Make A Wish foundation. After my son underwent his stem cell transplant, Make-A-Wish fulfilled his dream to see the New Orleans Saints play at the SuperDome. It was an incredible experience for not only our son, but for our entire family and one we will all cherish for many years to come. Through Make-A-Wish, we were able to spend time as a family, away from hospitals and medications, and just focus on having fun.
This season, I wanted to help other children make their wishes come true so we are partnering with Make-A-Wish to Adopt-A-Wish. Carissa is a beautiful 3 year old girl who is suffering from a brain tumor. She wishes to go to DisneyWorld and enjoy simply being a child. She is looking forward to the rides, meeting her favorite princess “Cinderella” and watching the Disney parade with all her favorite characters.
The entire cost of the trip is $7,500. I encourage you to donate whatever you are able. Every donation helps us get Carissa one step closer to her dream.
Here is what your donation can support in Carissa’s wish:
$10: purchase of Carissa’s scrapbook
$20: stuffed animal or backpack
$50: breakfast with Minnie Mouse
$100: one night hotel stay
Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Speaking from experience, I can tell you that Make-A-Wish does a tremendous job of helping these children feel like royalty for the short time that they are experiencing their wish.
I hope you will join me in fulfilling Carissa’s wish to go to DisneyWorld.
Thank you for your support!
