Since 1984, Dreams Come True (DCT) has fulfilled the dreams of more than 3,800 children in the Jacksonville area. DCT is the First Coast’s only locally-based organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope and joy to children battling life-threatening illnesses.
No child is ever denied a dream, and no child is ever placed on a waiting list. What has been so unique about the organization is that, one hundred percent of all donations go directly toward dream fulfillment.
Last week, twelve children from the agency were appointed as members of the 2018 TaxSlayer Bowl (TSB) Dream Team during a ceremony at TIAA Bank Field. This is the second year that DCT has established a partnership with the Gator Bowl organization.
The dreamers will serve as representatives for TSB, which will give youth a chance to be ambassadors for the organization. Dreams Come True participant Zion Williams, age 15, signed his Certificate of Intent and will now become an official member of the 2018 TGB Dream Team.
Williams was diagnosed with a germ-cell tumor commonly found in the brain. He finished intense proton therapy last year. Dreams Come True sent Williams and his family to Los Angeles this past June for his dream trip. The 2018 Taxslayer Bowl will take place Monday, December 31, 2019, for more visit www.taxslayerbowl.com.
