Make-A-Wish LA Goes American Girl


FBLA is a media partner Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles. We will be bringing you stories all season long about the children the organization assists.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation® of Greater Los Angeles held it’s 9th public wish celebration last night at The American Girl Place at The Grove to celebrate 3-year-old Tara Carlson’s wish to have a tea party themed bedroom makeover. Tara’s bedroom makeover was sponsored by Danone Simpson Insurance Services and was completed the day before the event with the help from Larli Boal from Paradeisos. In the spirit of the wish, Tara, along with other attendees were invited to a tea party at The American Girl Place Café where they played dress up and sampled treats. As a final surprise, Tara was presented with The American Girl doll.

Tara’s wish is one of many wishes granted to children with life-threatening medical conditions throughout November and December as part of Season of Wishes®. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles strives to bring holiday cheer to the Los Angeles community by granting wishes one child at a time.
