Round Table Pizza Partners with Make-A-Wish to Adopt Treyvonn's Wish
San Leandro, CA -- Round Table Family Charities has, once again, partnered with Make-A-Wish and adopted its third wish. Treyvonn, a 15-year old from San Leandro, is battling sickle-cell anemia. His wish was to go on a Disney Cruise with his family and, with the help of Round Table Family Charities, that wish came true.
On Sunday, March 9, Round Table held a celebration for Treyvonn and his family at one of its restaurant in San Leandro, where Treyvonn shared stores of the fun he had while on the cruise.
"Make-A-Wish's mission is to provide hope, strength and joy to children battling life-threatening medical conditions by granting their wish," explains Round Table CFO, Ken Stanecki. "We are excited about this opportunity to partner with this great organization and look forward to building this relationship."
On May 19, Round Table Family Charities will be holding a golf event in Danville. Proceeds from this event will go toward adopting additional wishes in the communities where Round Table operates.
