Everyone at Sumner Place in Lincoln Nebraska knows that Red has big opinions, a big personality and a big heart. Red’s daughter, Krislin, knows how much not seeing his brother for several years has weighed on his heart. When the staff at Sumner Place nominated Red to receive a Dream, Krislin wasn’t surprised that Red’s first inclination was to travel to visit his brother in Arizona.
Our friends at Corporate Travel Management helped us to plan a father-daughter trip to Arizona for Red and Krislin. The two stayed at a hotel near his brother’s house and rented a car so that they could visit family and old friends in the area. Red was overjoyed to reunite with his brother, got a kick out of seeing an old high school friend, and loved spending lots of quality time with his daughter. When it was time to pack up his things and return to Nebraska, Red smiled, knowing that he was bringing home memories of a wonderful trip he would never forget.
Dreamweaver Foundation would like to thank Sumner Place for introducing us to Red through the nomination process, and Corporate Travel Management, Avis, and VIP Limousine for their help in making sure that our Dreamer’s journey was perfect in every way.
