Blue Bunny Helps Grant Wish to Durham County Child


October 10, 2013

Wells Enterprises, Inc., the makers of Blue Bunny ice cream, is helping Make-A-Wish® grant 100 wishes to 100 kids with life-threatening medical conditions in honor of the company’s 100th birthday.

A Rougemont child’s one, heartfelt wish is being granted. Seven-year-old Kailey has battled leukemia since she was young, and on Sunday, October 13, Blue Bunny will help Make-A-Wish® celebrate her wish as part of Blue Bunny’s 100 Years, 100 Wishes program.

Kailey has wished for her very own playset in her backyard so she can play with her friends without needing to go far from home. Over the past few weeks, volunteers from the community have been building the playset for her to make her wish come true. To celebrate Kailey’s wish, Blue Bunny is hosting an ice cream social and celebration to share this special day with her family and friends.

Kailey’s wish is part of a national effort by Wells, makers of Blue Bunny Ice Cream, to help Make-A-Wish grant 100 wishes in honor of Wells’ centennial year. It’s Wells’ 100th birthday wish-come-true that 100 kids with life-threatening medical conditions have their wishes granted. Wish-granting events are taking place across the country, each celebrated and captured on
