Verifi and The Make-A-Wish Foundation joined together today to grant the wish of a young boy with Neurofibromatosis.
Beverly Hills, California (March 21, 2008) — Verifi, Inc., the leading provider of transaction risk management services for card-not-present merchants, and The Make-A-Wish Foundation joined together today to grant the wish of a young boy with Neurofibromatosis.
Verifi and Make-A-Wish jointly sponsored the wish and hosted a send off party for the 8 year old boy at his favorite restaurant, the Hard Rock, in Universal City Walk. The boy and his family will take a trip to Hawaii later this month to make his wish of swimming with dolphins come true.
“The Make-A-Wish Foundation gives hope to children who suffer from life threatening diseases. It has been extremely rewarding to work with Make-A-Wish and make a dream come true for this wonderful boy and his family.” said Matthew Katz, president of Verifi.
