The Los Angeles Lakers hosted their annual “Wish Night with the Lakers” at STAPLES Center on February 11th, 2014. The Los Angeles Lakers proudly support the efforts of Make-A-Wish of Greater Los Angeles and to show their appreciation $500 was donated to the organization from the Lakers Youth Foundation for every 3-pointer that was made by the Lakers. As the game came to a close the grand total of $5,000 was donated to Make-A-Wish of Greater LA!

The staff and volunteers from Make-A-Wish of Greater LA also joined the Lakers on Wish Night by sitting in section 323 of STAPLES Center, also donated by the Lakers Youth Foundation. Two “Wish Children” were also able to receive their wishes on “Wish Night” by participating in some Lakers activities and meeting their idol Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bryant was recently honored by Make-A-Wish of Greater Los Angeles for his continued support of the organization and granting countless wishes each year. Bryant is one of the most requested individuals to have a “Wish Meeting” from Make-A-Wish and he does not turn down an opportunity to make these wishes come true.

“Wish Night with the Lakers” was a huge success with a $5,000 donation made to Make-A-Wish of Greater LA! Special thanks to Kobe Bryant for making two lucky boys dream come true.
