Last year’s Family Fun at the Phoenix Zoo event offered several Los Niños Home Medical Services’ clients and their families, the chance to experience some stress-free fun—all thanks to the generosity of our community partners.
One lucky young man had an especially good time at the event when he won the door-prize raffle for a set of ADA-Compliant tickets to the ASU vs. UCLA basketball game on February 10, 2018. Though this Minnesotan family had never visited the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, Sun Devil Pride was now in their future.
On game day, Drew—accompanied by his brother, cousin, and grandmother—donned maroon and gold, and cheered along with the crowd. Beaming with excitement, Drew’s grandmother shared that her grandson had the time of his life, and that he joined the rest of the attendees (with the help of Drew’s brother and cousin) in doing the wave! Arizona State defeated UCLA 88-79. To see Drew in action, follow this link: http://bit.ly/2FwLKZS.
“I think we at Los Niños Home Medical Services convinced an entire family to become Sun Devil fans for life. The boys sure looked good in their maroon and gold. Oh, and yes the Sun Devils did beat UCLA on that afternoon, so what a great day for everyone!” ~ John Widder, Director of Los Niños Home Medical Services
Special thanks to Matt Salmon and Arizona State University’s Office of Government & Community Engagement for sponsoring the tickets.
