A representative from the Make-A-Wish Foundation came to Costa Mesa High School in order to give the Make-A-Wish Club the plaque. According to the representative, Costa Mesa High School has earned more money within the school year than some schools combined.
The most recent wish maker is a seven year old boy named Anthony* from Moreno Valley, California. Due to his constant treatments for his leukemia, Anthony found his room to be his most special place. Consequently, he asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation to redecorate his room to the theme of his favorite Disney move, Cars.
