Buffalo, NY – January 3, 2017 – ERA Team VP was proud to collaborate with Make-A-Wish Western New York to make a special young man’s wish come true over the holidays. Andrew, 16, of Spencerport, wished to have new ski equipment so he could enjoy time with his family on the slopes. Thanks to ERA Team VP, the teen was able to try out his new gear in Ellicottville with a trip to Holiday Valley with his mom, dad and sister.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation booked an ERA Team VP Vacation Rental Fox Ridge condo via Airbnb, which was then partially donated for the special trip. They made Andrew’s family feel so special by beautifully decorating their condo and including presents under the Christmas tree. “We were delighted to see the reservation come through,” says Rachael Wiley-Steffen, Director of Corporate Marketing and Vacation Rental Management. “The Make-A-Wish Foundation is far-reaching and impacts families and entire communities. We were thrilled to have it touch the Ellicottville community.”
Andrew’s family said, “The skiing was wonderful and your village is fabulous! We are sure to make a return visit someday.”
