Winston-Salem man, 99, granted wish to see Rockettes dancers perform Christmas show
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Bill Edwards’ wish to see the Rockettes again at Radio City Music Hall was fulfilled last weekend, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Edwards and his nephew, Harry Lawrence, flew to New York City on Dec. 6 to see the Rockettes perform their famous Christmas Spectacular show. The first time Edwards saw the famous dance company was in 1943.
The trip was courtesy of the Wish of a Lifetime organization — which grants seniors’ dreams and shares their stories to inspire people of all ages — and Chase bank. Edwards, 99, learned that his wish would be fulfilled during a ceremony Oct. 27 at Creekside Terrace retirement community, where he lives. The Snappy Tappers, a local Rockettes-like dance group, were there to help deliver the news.
Representatives from Chase played host in the Big Apple to Edwards and Lawrence. The planning was handled by Wish of a Lifetime.
