Nic's BC Rich Draco Guitar

Wish Kid Nic, rocks out on World Wish Day with his new BC Rich Draco guitar

“ For everyone who’s hand was helping with Nic’s wish, we can never thank you enough for the kindness and generosity you’ve shown through the special day you gave to Nicolas and us! ”

In Atlanta on April 29 - World Wish Day - Nic, a 14-year-old who had Burkitt’s Lymphoma was celebrating the gift of a wish. His day began when a limo picked his family up at the St. Regis and headed to Guitar Center. At Guitar Center he was able to play on different guitars, rock out with some of the employees, and rock ‘n roll in the “Live Room.” From there the limo took his family to Hard Rock Cafe Atlanta where he was greeted like a rock star with a red carpet and lots of cheering fans! Once inside Randy & Spiff, local radio personalities, began the program by giving Nic Ringo Starr’s items that Hard Rock was selling for Make-A-Wish Foundation®. Then Nic was presented with his BC Rich Draco guitar and other wish enhancement items. Following the presentation, local cover band Rock Mafia played some of Nic’s favorite heavy metal songs and then called Nic up on stage to play Smoke on Water with them. He had such a great time! The day wrapped up with shopping in the gift shop and then piling back into the limo for a ride around the town and then back to the hotel!

“For everyone who’s hand was helping with Nic’s wish, we can never thank you enough for the kindness and generosity you’ve shown through the special day you gave to Nicolas and us! God bless each and every one of you! We will never forget ya’ll!” ”
