The New Orleans Hornets made a young boy’s dream come true by hosting Brandon and his family for a night at “The Hive.” Brandon and his family were granted courtside access which included meeting several Hornets players, going on the court during a break in the game and even spending some time with Hornets owner Mr. George Shinn.
Brandon is fighting a tough battle against lukemia and was originally referred to A Child’s Wish to have his original wish granted which was an electronics shopping spree. Brandon picked out a new big screen TV that his family can enjoy plus a new XBox console and games for himeself. And since Brandon’s wish took place in May at the height of the Hornets historic playoff run – Brandon asked if he could attend a home game with his family.
Even though the game was sold out the Hornets set aside tickets for Brandon and his family. Their night on the town started with a limo ride from home with his family and big smiles all around. Upon arriving at the New Orleans arena he had the chance to meet the Hornets playes during their shootaround and even take a couple of shots himself!
Brandon met many of the players and got their autographs on his special souvenir basketball all provided courtesy of the Hornets. Take a look at some of his pictures with the Hornets players and even the owner, Mr. George Shinn!
