Orange County, CA - Robert Parisi, Senior Vice President of Merchant Services of Irvine recently announced that the company, as part of their ongoing commitment to supporting local charitable organizations, partnered with Make-A-Wish to help send a young woman to paradise.
Kristin is a strong young woman living with Sarcoma Cancer, but she doesn't let that hold her back. She loves the water, time with her friends, and the feeling of sand between her toes. When it came to deciding her most heartfelt wish, Kristin wanted nothing more than to visit the shores of beautiful Hawaii.
Nothing was held back from this VIP vacation. Kristin and her family were ushered to the airport via limousine, and upon landing in the Aloha state, they were greeted with traditional Hawaiian leis. During the stay, Kristin enjoyed horseback riding, jet skiing, boat touring, a historic tour of Pearl Harbor, and the family favorite: swimming and snorkeling. Kristin's favorite moment, however, was swimming and interacting with the dolphins.
Kristin and her family will never forget their trip of adventures, excursions, and relaxation on the beach. They are all grateful to Merchant Services of Irvine for helping to make Kristin's wish come true.
"Giving to organizations like Make-A-Wish is at the core of our business philosophy" said Robert Parisi, Senior Vice President of Merchant Services of Irvine. "We love helping to provide experiences that bring a bit of hope and joy to these kids and their families."
