Zach Meets Tar Heels Coach Roy Williams!

Recently I worked on a wish for a young man named Zach from Georgia who has a brain tumor. His wish was to meet the coach of his favorite team, the North Carolina Tar Heels. I began making calls and soon had a date planned for Zach to meet his hero. It wasn’t long before Zach and his parents were on their way to Chapel Hill!


Many sponsors helped to make Zach’s wish VERY special. Enterprise Rent-A-Car donated a vehicle; Carolina Inn donated their plush accommodations and daily breakfast to make Zach comfortable and keep him well fed during his wish; Kanki Japanese House of Steaks & Sushi not only donated a dinner fit for a king but also presented Zach with an autographed book, basketball and jersey from Coach Roy Williams; 411 West donated dinner the night of the game. For the actual wish, the North Carolina Tar Heels arranged for him and his parents to have 1st rate seats to the game and also arranged the all important meet ‘n’ greet with Coach Williams before the game! The icing on the cake was the “blowout victory” that the Tar Heels experienced that night. Thanks to Chapel Hill for your great Southern Hospitality!!!
