Then, on Tuesday (Feb. 2), the parking lot of the Mardi Gras Casino will convert to a racetrack where professional drivers will race the children around in top-of-the-line sports cars and the kids will be treated to a Hallandale PD canine show, a helicopter landing from BSO and much more.

The kids we are bringing to South Florida confront such serious challenges every day, so it is an absolute honor for us to be able to bring them here for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

This weekend 30 children and their families will travel thousands of miles from Israel and Canada to South Florida where local charity MyWish4U.org has arranged amazing opportunities for the kids to enjoy some much-needed fun and relaxation. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is designed for children with life-threatening illnesses to help lift their spirits and as they fight disease.

The group will arrive in South Florida following a week in Orlando visiting the theme parks. On January 31 and February 2, they will enjoy a pair of uniquely South Florida experiences.

Here are just some of the details about what will take place:

The My Wish 4 U Kosher kitchen trailer, which was stolen and later recovered with help from the South Florida media, will cook up complimentary meals for the kids and their families for the event. Since the charity’s trailer was returned to it following last year’s theft, it has been completely upgraded and redesigned.

Joe Zevuloni, the founder of MyWish4U.org, is a South Florida entrepreneur and avid activist in the fight against pediatric cancer. “I strongly believe that a happy environment for a seriously ill child can significantly increase his or her chances to overcome the disease,” said Zevuloni, who lost his mother to cancer at a very early age. “The kids we are bringing to South Florida confront such serious challenges every day, so it is an absolute honor for us to be able to bring them here for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
