The members of Phi Gamma Delta at Michigan State University helped make an ill little girl’s dreams come true.
The fraternity partnered up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to raise $12,000 for Sylvia Shauver. The six-year-old, who suffers from a genetic blood disease called Hemoglobin SS, was treated to an all-expenses paid trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, with her family.
From The State News:
“It was a once in a life time family memory,” Sylvia’s mother, Lashelle Shauver, said. “They treated us like royalty and rolled the red carpet out for us from beginning to end.”
A chance to hang with the Disney princesses, see the ocean for the first time, and forget about the disease she’s been suffering from her whole life. What more could a little girl want?
Just one more thing, apparently — the chance to meet the men who made it all possible.
“At first we felt great that we were able to sponsor a child through Make-A-Wish,” advertising junior and member of the fraternity Ryan Lowe said. “But then when we heard that she and her family wanted to come meet us and it gave me personally such a happy feeling that the trip we sponsored meant so much to Sylvia and her family.”
Major props to the Epsilon Lambda chapter of Phi Gamma Delta..
