The Long Island, New York chapter of national nonprofit Twilight Wish Foundation, led by director James Ciervo, granted its very first wish on May 5, 2008! Dale Grand, 74, of Yonkers, NY, had requested to meet Jon Stewart, the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Although Twilight Wish was not able to arrange a meeting with Stewart, Grand, his daughter, and Ciervo enjoyed a lovely lunch at the 1050 Lounge in Manhattan, then attended a taping of the show on Monday, May 5, 2008 at the studios. After the taping of The Daily Show, Grand received a copy of the script of that day’s show as a memento.
