El Paso Teen’s Wish will soon be Granted

EL PASO, Texas – A teen with a life-threatening illness is having his wish for makeover for his Jeep granted on December 12th through several local sponsors and national children’s charity, Kids Wish Network.

15-year-old El Paso boy, Playford, who suffers from Complex Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease, asked national children’s charity Kids Wish Network if they could grant his only wish: to have his 1997 Jeep Sahara completely made over. They assured the teen that it would happen.

Kids Wish Network Wish Coordinator Jill made calls to both Viva Dodge Chrysler Jeep and Viva Auto Group to see if they would be able to help fulfill Playford’s wish; they were only too happy to help grant the teen’s wish by making the experience extra special for him.

After undergoing a full makeover that includes new doors, a hard top, a lift kit, a light bar and even a stylish new paintjob, the beautifully made over Jeep Sahara will be presented to Playford during a ceremony hosted by Viva Dodge Chrysler Jeep and Viva Auto Group at the Dodge Chrysler Jeep dealership in El Paso on Saturday, December 12th.

Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following for helping to make Playford’s wish extra special: Viva Dodge Chrysler Jeep, Viva Auto Group, Bull Dawg Doors & Tops and Rough Country.

Kids Wish Network is a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children.
