Last Saturday a 90-year-old Korean War veteran’s wish came true. Ed Topor had always dreamed of attending a Yankees game.
Our friends at Needs Clearing House got word and then they got busy.
State Rep Fred Camillo and Joe Kaliko, the founders of NCH, helped arrange for Mr. Topor’s wish to come true.
Mr. Camillo secured the donated tickets. Then NCH gave Mr. Topor spending money. Up in the Hartford area where Mr. Topor lives, Sharon Gauthier, the main person behind the wish-come-true, secured the limousine which arrived to pick up Mr. Topor and whisk him off to the ballgame in style.
“It is a heartwarming story as everyone loves this man in Hartford,” Camillo said. “He has no family, so we made sure the day would be a special one for him!”
Judging from the photos, the day was indeed special. Thank you, NCH for all you guys do!
