Brittni is a 17-year -old young lady from Geneva, MN who’s fighting a life-threatening heart disease called Tetralogy of Fallot. She came to Wishes & More® in hopes of having her dream come true. Brittni is a huge Twins fan and, more importantly, a Joe Mauer fan. In March of 2008, Brittni’s wish to go to the Twins’ spring training in Ft Myers, FL and meet her favorite player came true! We found out that Joe loves white cupcakes with white frosting and Wishes & More® wanted her to have a gift to present to Joe. We connected with a local bakery, and the head baker jumped on board and met Brittni early in the morning to prepare a batch of cupcakes for Joe. Brittni suddenly became pretty shy when she was in front of her hero, but Joe made her very comfortable and spent about half an hour with her and absolutely loved the cupcakes! Joe gifted her an autographed bat, and she received one from Justin Morneau too. Brittni and each of her family members with her also received gift bags full of Twins goodies from the entire team. The fun and excitement didn’t stop there – at game time, Brittni threw out the first pitch to Joe, FROM THE MOUND!! Despite the loss to Tampa Bay and the overcast weather, Brittni was gleaming the excitement of the experience.
