Making Wishes a Reality – We’ve Made It!

#JoeysWish Raises More Than Double its Fundraising Target for Children’s Wish

A group of high octane philanthropists who came together to grant a unique wish have raised over $60,000, more than double the amount they initially set out to bring in, allowing The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada to grant wishes for many deserving children.


Only a month ago the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada approached the team here at Ferrari Maserati of Vancouver about a young man named Joey. Joey suffers from a Chronic condition, Optic Chiasm Glioma (a rare type of brain tumor).

We got to learn a little about Joey and his Love of Ferrari, after further investigation we learned that it is his dream to visit Maranello and tour the Ferrari Museum.

Naturally of course we wanted to help so the Team here at FMOV put their heads together along with some of our friends and created “Diamond” a cocktail fundraiser.  The Event took place at 1860 Burrard with over 150 of #JoeysWish supporters drinking Belvedere, Moet, cold press Juice from Body Energy Club, while sampling light bites from our good friends Hawksworth Catering.  Overall the night was absolutely perfect and we are happy to say we were able to raise 11,000 dollars.

Special thanks to Steve Han Photography for all the beautiful moments captured throughout the evening.
