WISH TO VISIT THE CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL IN NASHVILLE CAME TRUE!

Alyssa, 12
acute lymphocytic leukemia

12 year old Alyssa is a big country music fan. When asked what her wish was, she wished to attend the CMA Awards in Nashville. Kretschmar hosted a two-day VIP country music experience for Willis, beginning with a private concert by Ruthie Collins, a rising country star who is part of Kretschmar's Future Legends of Country. Next, Alyssa and her family were treated to a show at the iconic Grand Ole Opry. After some celebrity treatment by hair stylists and make-up artists, the super-fan had a red carpet experience and brushed elbows with some of country music's biggest stars. "Kretschmar is committed to supporting the important efforts of Make-A-Wish and helping to makewishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions, like Alyssa," said Mike Sargent, Senior Brand Manager, Kretschmar Deli. "The Kretschmar Future Legends of Country program is all about providing incredible country music experiences, and we were privileged to have the opportunity to make this unforgettable experience possible with help from Make-A-Wish."
