Subaru to Reveal Child's Wish At Subaru Winterfest


February 07, 2015


Subaru WinterFest

Derek, a spunky, sports-loving 11-year-old who has had a liver transplant, wishes to go fishing in Alaska. On Saturday, February 7, Make-A-Wish® Utah (MAWU), with the help of Subaru of America, Inc. revealed to Derek that his heartfelt wish will come true.

Derek has been dreaming of Alaska’s “liquid sunshine,” mystic-blue glaciers, and salmon as big as he is. Its untamed wilderness holds exciting appeal for the mountain-man-in-training, who loves learning about animals, especially bears. Derek’s wish experience will give him more than a freezer full of fish — it will be the adventure of a lifetime.

Subaru of America, Inc. has invited wish kid Derek and his family to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort for a surprise wish reveal on-stage at their Subaru WinterFest event. Subaru WinterFest is a lifestyle expo stopping at some of the best mountains across the country. Subaru is a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish and is happy to not only host Derek and his family at Snowbird, but to sponsor Derek’s wish to go to Alaska.

Media and guests at Snowbird are invited to join in on the fun.

Help share the hope, strength and joy of Derek’s wish reveal by tagging @subaru_USA, @makeawishutah or by using the hashtag #subarusnow.

WHEN/ Saturday, February 7, 2015 — 3:00 p.m.


9385 S. Snowbird Center Dr.

Snowbird, UT

The wish reveal will take place on the Subaru WinterFest FreeRide stage, located at the main resort base, in front of the Christy Sports building.

MORE: Subaru of America, Inc. has been a proud sponsor of Make-A-Wish for four years. In that time, Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million to help make more than 610 wishes come true.
