What perfect timing! Giving a Kiss of HOPE to a huge soccer fan during the World Cup! This little cutie is Brian. Knowing that his family needs and deserves a wonderful memory making experience, we set out to give him one with the Chicago Fire. Brian’s favorite team is Barcelona. However, he has quickly become a fan of the Chicago Fire! CKMC brought huge goody bags full of gift cards, treats, soccer gear and items from both Barcelona and the Chicago Fire for Brian and his little brother, Marcos, who also loves soccer. We also provided the family with a new digital camera to capture every moment of their experience.

Brian’s Kiss of HOPE began with his parents, brother and cousin all being picked up by limousine to drive them in style to Toyota Park. Brian had never been in a limo before, and when we delivered his Kiss his face absolutely lit up at the thought of riding in one for the first time. In the parking lot of the stadium there was a pre-game fest taking place for them to enjoy. Once inside to their seats (just behind the team benches) the whole family was whisked off to the sidelines to watch the warm ups up close and personal. The fun didn’t stop there for Brian! The honorary “first kick” was done by our little superhero. How amazing is that?! The family was given plenty of spending money to enjoy themselves for the entire experience. Once the game was over they were all invited into the Stadium Club for an autograph session and meet and greet with the players. The limo then picked them up after their wonderful night to take them home. They enjoyed stretching out and relaxing. Brian’s comments – “it was so cool and I never thought I would get to kick the ball on a soccer field!” Brian we are thrilled you enjoyed every minute of your soccer experience! We also helped Brian’s family pay some of their monthly bills which was much appreciated.”
