has been another wild week of making Warrior Wishes come true! We kicked things off on Thursday afternoon making wishes come true at Guys’s Grocery games In Santa Rosa, CA.

Then Thursday night we hosted warriors at the Raiders game…

On Sunday afternoon we made wishes come true at the Bears game…

Then Sunday night we had the honor of hosting 7 Marines on the Marines birthday in a suite at the Blackhawks game…

We celebrated Veterans Day in California hosting warriors at the unforgettable Seahawks vs 49ers game…

And today we are back at the United Center for the 2nd time this week making Warrior Wishes come true in a suite at the Bulls game!

Unfortunately I told my dad to go to the wrong airport after the 49ers game. He attempted to call me multiple times (10) to get more information about his flight, but I slept right thru all the calls…  Thankfully he figured out my mistake and was able to jump on the last train from San Francisco to Oakland to catch his Tuesday morning flight back to sweet home Chicago. Sorry dad…

Upon his arrival in Chicago, he froze his butt off and made his way directly to the United Center to meet up with our guests for the night.  Fellow board member, Bill Heaton fought his way thru rush hour traffic and met my dad and the warriors in front of the Michael Jordan statue before making their way inside the stadium and up to the penthouse Suite.

I had planned to meet up with them at 6pm myself, but I also got stuck in heavy traffic. Eventually I made it to the stadium around 6:30 after 2 hour drive…

Today we had the honor of hosting Marines Valerie Reynoso and Arlene Duncan, Navy Veteran Angela Hlavacek, Army veterans Gary Hlavacek, Solomon Duncan, and Lisa Artis and Air Force veterans Raimondi Ross, Jim Vales and Jonathan Vales in a Bulls Suite thanks to a friend who donated the tickets!

By the time I got there, the group was enjoying some delicious food and getting to know each other.  Throughout the night we shared some unforgettable moments. Former Chicago Bulls Mickey Johnson and Cliff Livingston stopped by the suite to show their appreciation to the warriors and the Luvabulls also made an appearance!

Operation Warrior wishes would like to thank the Bulls for going above and beyond for helping us provide these memorable experiences and for providing gift bags to each of the veterans complete with a stocking cap which came in handy considering the record cold temperatures outside…

Of course one of the highlights of the night came when the “Suite Sweet cart” rolled by. The warriors lined up to treat themselves. The Bulls cookies were a big hit!

In the end, Bulls rookie, Coby White stole the show and drained a record breaking 7 three pointers in 1 quarter! Everyone went wild when the Knicks missed 5 total free throws scoring us all a free Portillo’s hot dog and the Bulls went on to win to beat the Knicks by the final score of 120-102.

Operation Warrior Wishes would like to thank Valerie, Arlene, Angela, Gary, Solomon, Lisa, Raimondi, Jim and Jonathan for their dedicated service to our country. It was an honor to have had the opportunity to host you all at the Bulls game!

After the game my dad made his way home with me to get a much needed good night sleep. He will be hanging out with the grandkids tomorrow before heading back out on the road to make Warrior Wishes come true in Cleveland Thursday night. Stay Tuned…
