LOGAN, Utah (KUTV) — Make-A-Wish Utah surprised 6-year-old Bridger with the news that his wish to meet his favorite YouTuber will be formally granted during a Harry Potter themed party, thanks to a partnership with Utah State University.
The event is part of MAWU's fourth annual Drive for Wishes campaign, which is sponsored by Fox Pest Control, Malouf, Little Caesars, and Roolee.
Bridger traveled on a journey through Diagon Alley and attend a Sorting Hat ceremony where the Request Wizard will read a scroll declaring Bridger's wish will be granted by MAWU.
Attendees were encouraged to dress up as their favorite Harry Potter character.
Bridger, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2020, has been fighting the disease since then.
For him, watching YouTube videos with his siblings was a nice break.
He did not hesitate to desire to meet his favorite family YouTubers when he realized he could have a wish granted.
This is one of numerous wish events that will be part of the Drive for Wishes campaign this year, which will also feature wish activities in Ogden, Park City, and St. George. Drive for Wishes will use a variety of wish events to share the power of a wish, including many wish reveals for Utah children waiting for a wish, employee giving events to generate funds for local wishes, and several fundraisers to grant more Utah wishes. Community people are urged to participate in the Drive for Wishes activities and join MAWU in their goal of granting every eligible child's dream in Utah.
