Warrior Wishes Come True At The Hawks Game In Dallas!

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!

Warrior Wishes Come True Thanks To The Stars!

After making Warrior Wishes come true in Denver for Army SGT Nicholas Dighans at the AFC championship game, my dad made his way back to the Denver airport for the 2nd night in a row.  


He took a 7am flight to Dallas for $36 to make warrior wishes come true at the Dallas Stars game.  


As soon as his flight landed in Dallas he jumped on a bus to Arlington to meet up with a few Warriors at AT&T stadium for a VIP tour of “Jerry’s house”.  


Army Warrior Marchus Burleson & his father along with Marine Jared Deruby joined my dad touring the most amazing stadium in the world. From the press box, to the luxury suites to the locker room & the field, it was incredible!

The best part of the tour is the last stop where everyone got to take a picture on the Star at the 50 yard line!  


Once the tour wrapped up, everyone made their way downtown Dallas to eat & meet up with the rest of the warriors.  Joining the group was Marines Chris Rowe & Julio Marin, Army Warriors, Amber & Mike Wells, Navy Warrior Jeremy McConnell & Air Force Warrior JR Boddy.  We would like to thank the worlds largest Hooters restaurantfor filling everyone up on wings & giving us a place to get to know each other before the game.


Amber Wells & The Dallas Stars went above & beyond to help us make Warrior Wishes come true in a “suite” way!  Amber helped us organize this event & the Stars provided a luxurious suite for the Warriors to watch the game in.  


The Warriors went wild watching their Stars beat the Flames 2-1!

We would like to thank the Dallas Stars & Amber Wells for the opportunity to Make these warrior wishes come true!  We also would like to thank AT&T stadium & the Cowboys for providing the VIP tour & Hooters for providing lunch!  


After the game, my dad thanked the Warriors one last time for their service & sacrifices before making his way back to the airport for his 3rd straight night. Luckily he found a comfortable chair to sleep on & woke up in time to catch his 5am flight back home.


We will be spending all week to plan for Super Bowl events.  If you or anyone you know has tickets to the big game that would be willing to sell them at face value or donate them, please let us know ASAP so we can make more warrior wishes come true at the big game!
