SPOTLIGHT ON: Allegory and Make-a-Wish

Allegory and Make-A-Wish Partner up to Make Dreams Happen at Comic Con 2012

On the heels of their success last year, Allegory hosted three Make-A-Wish families at this year’s Comic Convention. The weekend was a huge success, as the kids (and their families) were able to meet their favorite artists, attend their desired panels as VIPs, meet their favorite TV and movie stars and get the behind-the-scenes treatment they truly deserved!

Watch more about our endeavors with Make-a-Wish on our Vimeo channel.

When not managing the Allegory house, David is actively working on his golf game, although he continues to wonder why they place magnets around the course which divert his ball from the greens.
