South Carolina materials and plastic parts maker Jadex Inc. did more than simply donate money to help send a 10-year-old girl to Disney World through Make-A-Wish Foundation.
"The company hosted a [March 13] Disney World send-off party for Stephany and her family at their corporate offices … complete with food, fun activities and a few familiar characters," Jadex said in a news release. "From the balloon-decorated walkway to the princess-themed cupcakes, the company created a fun and magical experience for Stephany."
Jadex staffers dressed up in Disney attire, up to — and including — complete princess costumes.
Brian Searfoss, president of two Jadex operating companies — LifeMade Products LLC and Shakespeare Co. LLC — and a Make-A-Wish South Carolina board member, said employees went "above and beyond to make this wish reveal extra special for her and her family."
Shakespeare has donated more than $500,000 during the past 23 years to Make-A-Wish and helped grant more than 70 wishes during that time.
