  • Connor's wish

“Connor’s condition will always be a challenge. But in his wish, he finds belief in all the possibilities in his life. ”

Everything is just as Connor imagined – the stage, the bright lights, the enthusiastic audience. He puts his hand on the famous wheel and gives it a spin, a highlight of his Wheel of Fortune wish.

Connor’s is the 14th wish granted by the Wheel of Fortune family. Since their first wish in 2000, they’ve welcomed every Wheel of Fortune wish with unforgettable enthusiasm. The cast and crew do everything to ensure that Connor enjoys every moment of his visit.

Connor and his family sit in the audience for two taped episodes and meet Vanna White, Connor’s favorite TV personality. They enjoy taking photos by the classic letter board, the one thing Connor has been most anxious to see. He’s always wanted to touch the famous letter board … and the day he finally does, it displays a message just for him: “Wheel of Fortune welcomes Connor!”

Connor’s condition will always be a challenge. But in his wish, he finds belief in all the possibilities in his life. And his new friends on the Wheel of Fortune set see how a Make-A-Wish® experience can change a kid’s life.
