I wish to meet the Dallas Cowboys

Wish kid Nicky Rachel Pringle

“ The act of wish granting serves to strengthen communities. When volunteers help to grant wishes, they report feeling an increased sense of compassion and desire to help others, and a greater faith in humanity. ”


- 2011 Wish Impact Study

Wish kid Nicky learned that his wish to meet the Dallas Cowboys came true, thanks to wish sponsor, First Horizon. He was surprised with his wish come true when he visited a First Horizon location and came face-to-face with First Horizon employees dressed as cheerleaders, football players and fans!

Wish kid Nicky came to Memphis to celebrate his grandparent's anniversary - so he thought! While enroute to the anniversary celebration, Nicky and his family made a quick stop at First Horizon bank to get money for the meal. As he quickly learned, the employees of First Horizon planned a very special surprise to reveal his wish come true!

The employees of First Horizon raised the funds to sponsor Nicky's wish, and were thrilled to plan a special afternoon to celebrate his wish come true. When Nicky came in First Horizon, he was met by employees dressed as fans, cheerleaders and football players - there was even a stadium, field and concession stand set up for a football game! 

At the end of the game, Nicky was named MVP and he was told his wish to meet the Dallas Cowboys had come true! 

Wish Sponsor: First Horizon
Volunteers: Amanda Maxwell and Lora Moore
