Ravenwood High School

Five-year-old Gabriella has been sick with heart issues and her only wish was to travel to Disney World. Together with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ravenwood High School students helped make that dream come true.

Last Friday, students gathered in the gym to surprise Gabriella with a trip to Disney World. Ravenwood teacher Stephanie Dykes coordinated the students and fund raising to make Gabriella’s dream come true and students have raised almost $9,000 this year.
