Make-A-Wish Foundation makes Super Bowl dream come true for recipient from Anthem

The Super Bowl brought excitement for many, including one fan from Anthem.

Courtesy of donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Garrett Lee got to attend the big game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.

Jessica Haag is a spokeswoman for Make-A-Wish.

“Garrett is a big Kansas City Chiefs fan, and he’s hoping that he’ll see his team take the victory this year. Garrett is 18 years old, and he has a nervous system disorder,” she said.

According to Haag, Lee’s ultimate dream was to attend the event.

He participated in several activities leading up to the game, including being a part of the red carpet and meeting players at the NFL Honors event. His Chiefs defeated the Niners 25-22 in overtime.
