A Sweet Sixteen

May 20, 2013 – Small Business Growth Alliance (SBGA) Sponsors a Special Sweet Sixteen Birthday Wish Granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation
A Sweet Sixteen

Out of all of the days in the year, a birthday is by far the most important day to a single person. Whether you’re turning 16 or 60, a birthday is a time to make wishes, make memories, and most importantly, to celebrate life. SBGA has once again teamed up with the Make-a-Wish® foundation for its 51st wish granting to make one young woman’s birthday a day to remember.

Jocelynn is a fun-loving girl. Like most sixteen-year-olds, Jocelynn loves shopping, texting and keeping up with her favorite television shows. Unlike most sixteen-year-olds, however, Jocelynn must also deal with the daily struggles of living with Lupus. With sponsorship from SBGA, Make-A-Wish® was able to reach out to Jocelynn just in time for her birthday to grant her most heartfelt wish – a sweet sixteen birthday party.

As decorations were hung for an incredible party, Jocelynn spent her morning getting her hair and nails done for her special event that night. When the time came for the DJ to announce Jocelynn’s arrival, guests waited excitedly in a beautifully decorated room to greet the birthday girl. Dressed like a princess in a long, flowing white gown adorned with sparkling crystals, Jocelynn made her debut to all of her friends and family in attendance.

The night was filled with delicious food, endless dancing, smiles, laughter – and of course, birthday songs and adorable cupcakes. Jocelynn spent her time with her family and friends, feeling beautiful and celebrating life.

SBGA and all of its dedicated employees and business consultants feel honored to have given an amazing young woman a wonderful night to remember. “The determination our team members demonstrate in helping to bring positive experiences to Make-A-Wish® children is astonishing,” Nathan Jurczyk, Vice President said. “We are proud of our team, and are touched by the hope and joy they help bring to these kids and their families.”
