BALLSFEST! Seriously! Is that really a thing? It is – and it is supported by four of our Wilson dealerships: Right Toyota, Right Honda, Toyota of Las Vegas and Toyota of Huntington Beach.
The term “Ballsfest” was created by Frank DeBlasi, a testicular cancer survivor and passionate supporter of children living with cancer. Now in its 10th year, Ballsfest produces signature fundraising events and otherwise raises money for young cancer patients who are facing especially difficult challenges. The goal is to sponsor unforgettable experiences for these “Ballers” and their families.
This year’s event was held at Mountain Shadows Resort and honored eight Ballers.
Wilson Automotive adopted 7-year-old Bridget Korn. Bridget was diagnosed with an aggressive bone cancer tumor in 2018, and has undergone over 50 weeks of chemo and had her right leg amputated below the knee. We will be taking Bridget and her family to Vegas to meet her idol, Carrie Underwood.
Last year we adopted 14-year-old Casey Page, who has been battling cancer since he was two months old. Casey’s dream was to see his favorite artist, Michael Buble, in concert. We helped make that wish come true – and then some. Casey and his family stayed in the penthouse suite at the Waldorf Astoria in Vegas, and had VIP seats in a luxury box at T-Mobile Arena. During the concert Michael gave Casey a shout-out in one of his songs. This amazing dream-come-true evening was topped off by a post-concert visit with the artist himself. Michael chose the post-show visit for Casey, so he could spend more time with this young man and his family.
Wilson Automotive is proud to support Ballsfest and help provide unforgettable experiences for these incredibly courageous kids.
P.S. Bridget just completed another round of treatments and shows no more evidence of the disease!
