Corona based Monster Beverage Company is partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Orange County and the Inland Empire to sponsor the wish of 14-year-old Christopher, also of Corona, who is battling Burkitt's lymphoma.
Christopher's wish to go on a shopping spree for motorcycle gear and other accessories will begin at 10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 17 at Corona Motorsports. Representatives from Monster Energy and the Make-A-Wish Foundation will be on site to share in this special wish with fun enhancements for the family.
Christopher's favorite hobbies are dirt bike riding and hardcore scootering. When asked what his most heartfelt wish was, he knew he wanted to go on a shopping spree, so he could get more gear for his bike and other accessories. On his special day, he will arrive by limousine and spend his first hour or two shopping at Corona Motorsports with their top staff on hand to help him find the correct gear both he needs and desires. Christopher, his family and wish granters will then continue their day celebrating his wish by visiting other local stores.
The "Monster Energy Gives Back" program has been developed to give back to the community through fundraisers, charitable donations from both the private and public, and monetary in kind donations from both the company and affiliates. The program engages the community to stand together and bring smiles to the faces of seriously ill children, adolescents and adults.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Orange County and the Inland Empire grants 300 wishes a year locally. The Foundation relies on the support of the community to help make these wishes come true.
