Samuel Nania, a resident of William Penn Care Center in Jeannette, had his wish to attend a Pirates game granted, thanks to the Westmoreland County chapter of Twilight Wish Foundation. Sam, 58, is an avid Pittsburgh Pirates fan who watches every game on TV. Because he is physically disabled, it is difficult for him to leave the facility much less attend a game in person. Thanks to the Pittsburgh Pirates who donated the tickets, Sam and a caretaker attended the July 25th game vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. The Westmoreland County chapter provided spending money and paid for transportation for them.
Six wheelchair-bound seniors from Neshaminy Manor in Warrington, PA recently had their wish to go to a Phillies game granted, thanks to y Twilight Wish and the Phillies. The residents, along with their Neshaminy Manor caretakers and staff from Twilight Wish, enjoyed a great game on Thursday, June 27th as the Phillies swept the Mets in the four-game series. All six seniors are huge Phillies fans and watch the games faithfully. Because they are wheelchair-bound and have limited spending money, being able to leave the facility and attend a Phillies game is a huge treat for them.
