Hayden salon helping Wishing Star boy | Events
Being born without a complete heart hasn't held back four-year-old Steven from enjoying life. The hearts of those in his community are looking to make his life more enjoyable.
GTOS (Go to our Salon), a hair salon in Hayden, ID, is hosting a benefit along with the local Wishing Star Foundation to raise 5000 dollars to send Steven to Disney World at the end of August.
Steven was born with DiGeorge syndrome, a chromosome disorder similar to Down Syndrome. Just three days after Steven was born he had to have heart surgery because he did not have an aortic arch, and was on a ventilator for the first two years of his life due to paralysis of his bottom right diaphragm.
The benefit called "Steven's Wish" will be held August 11th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at GTOS. According to benefit planners, the event includes: "BBQ, live music, baked cakes, a HUGE raffle and mini services ALL day and Steven will be there from 3-5!"
Tickets for the raffle are 5 dollars and are on sale now. One hundred percent of the benefits proceeds go toward sending Steven to Disney World.
GTOS is located at 124 Dakota, Hayden, ID and can be contacted at (208) 772-2297. Check their Facebook http://www.facebook.com/GTOSalon for updates on "Steven's Wish."
