My dad made his way to Dallas to make wishes come true at a Blackhawks game less than a week after having the once in a lifetime opportunity to “Bowl with the Hawks” thanks to our friends at the Inner City Education Program.
At that event, warriors teamed up with Blackhawks defenseman, Connor Murphy to win the 10th Annual ICE Bowl Championship.
Earlier this year we received a nomination from Stephanie Bass. Her husband served 7 years in the Air Force, 1 year in the National Guard, and 4 years in the Army. Richard Bass grew up going to Blackhawks games with his dad, who also served our country. Unfortunately his dad has passed away, but Richard Bass is a Die Hard Hawks fan, even though he now lives in Dallas.
After my dad hosted warriors in the Stars suite on Thursday he looked to see what other events were going on while he was in town before the Mavericks game on Sunday. When he saw the Hawks were playing in Dallas on Saturday night, he knew it would be the perfect opportunity to make wishes come true at the game for Richard! And our new friend, Connor Murphy helped us make it happen!
We would like to thank Connor and all of his Blackhawks teammates for stopping by to thank Richard for his service and sacrifices.
Based on the reaction below, I think it was a night that Richard Bass will never forget!
TOGETHER WE MAKE WARRIOR WISHES COME TRUE!
