Walker Edison teamed up with Make-A-Wish Utah to help create an exciting day to reveal that Avery’s wish is going to be granted. Avery, a darling fun-loving young girl who was diagnosed with a nervous system disorder at the age of two, made a wish to have a bedroom makeover as she loves getting creative, with some of her hobbies being crafting and shopping for stylish outfits. She wants to design her room to match her bubbly personality by going shopping to find the furniture and décor she likes most.
On Saturday, April 28th, Walker Edison picked Avery, her mom, and her brother up in the morning for a surprise adventure she won’t ever forget. Traveling in style, a limo drove her around to multiple destinations until the late afternoon when her exciting wish reveal day ended.
For her love of cats, the first stop was at a Tinker’s Cat Café in the city. Who knew that existed here in Utah?! She got to play with the cats in the cute little café and eat some snacks. Next up, she headed to a Heart Beads Jewelry filled with unlimited crafts so she could create something unique. She made several bracelets filled with beads and charms that spoke to her personality, while her brother made a necklace.
The fun day wasn’t over yet, as they got to go to a salon and get their toes painted. Avery and her family dipped their toes into the warm water and sat in massage chairs to relax and have their toes decorated with bright colors for spring. Afterwards, lunch was served at Zupas where Avery was greeted with a group of people from Walker Edison and Make-A-Wish Utah. Her proclamation was read aloud to tell her that her wish is going to be granted soon! She was so excited to hear that in a few weeks she’ll get to redecorate her room however she wants to!
Once lunch was over, Avery was taken to her last stop, a Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Chocolate Factory for a sweet treat and tour. She got to pick out some candy pieces to dip into the tasty chocolate and have it customized for her to take home and snack on. The lovely employees took her behind the scenes where the chocolate is made and packaged.
Walker Edison was so glad to hear that Avery, her mom, and her brother had a blast that day, as we wanted to make the day special! We can’t wait to hear about her new room!
Thanks for all those who made her day the best!
