BoDeans Baking Company Helps Grant Wish


December 15, 2014



A child from Ashton, Iowa recently had her one, heartfelt wish granted. Nine-year-old Autumn, who has a heart condition, loves Tinker Bell, Lumiere and Belle, so her wish was an easy one – she wanted to go to Walt Disney World® Resort with her family.  The group traveled to Florida in November through Make-A-Wish® Iowa, fulfilling her wish.

As part of Autumn’s wish, she and her family stayed at Give Kids the World Village, a resort just for wish families with private villas, ice cream all day long and family activities. Besides visiting all of the Disney theme parks, the family spent time at Universal Studios and Sea World.

BoDeans Baking Company helped Make-A-Wish® Iowa grant her wish, in honor of Blue Bunny’s 100th anniversary. “BoDeans Baking Company was established in 2001, and has been a strategic partner with Wells Blue Bunny since our inception,” shared Jason Jauron, Human Resources Manager at BoDeans. “We are proud to supply ice cream cones, wafers, and inclusions to Wells Blue Bunny, and look forward to continuing our relationship with Wells to exceed customers’ expectations.”

To welcome her home, Autumn’s wish experience will include a Blue Bunny Ice Cream social and celebration at the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor & Museum in Le Mars, Iowa, to share her special trip with her family and friends.
