Zoey's Wish

 On December 18, 2017, a Kia Sedona MPV*  full of toys and gifts will be delivered by Danbury Kia staff to the patients of the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital to fulfill the Christmas wish of Zoey Seferi.

The Christmas and holiday season is always a time of giving at Danbury Kia so when a mother with a child with an auto immune disorder came to our showroom, a unique opportunity was presented to help grant a Christmas wish.

Amanda Seferi came to Danbury Kia to purchase an all-wheel drive vehicle. She explained that her beautiful 5-year-old daughter, Zoey, suffered from an autoimmune disorder that left her susceptible to frequent lung infections. Amanda needed a dependable vehicle in order to make the long drive back and forth from Connecticut to the Westchester New York area hospital where Zoey receives her treatment.

In the process of getting to know Amanda and Zoey, their sales consultant, Jake Green, asked Zoey what she wanted for Christmas. Her answer, "All I want is for all my friends in the hospital to get presents."  She and her mother have made it their mission to make sure this happens. According to Amanda, "Maria Fareri is an amazing facility that serves children from birth to 21-years  with compromised immune systems ."  To fufill everyones wishes the hospitals wish list contains a variety of toys, toiletries, art items, music, and clothing to accommodate all the patients.

Jake, immediately one over by the touching story and the spunky vivacious personality of Zoey , knew that this was an opportunity for Danbury Kia to give back to the community and help Zoey's wish come true. 

When he explained the situation to General Sales Manager, Sal Sinardi, Sr.; and Owner, Bill Sabatini, they did not hesitate to agree to help. Bill Sabatini says, "Danbury Kia supports community organizations throughout the year but December is a special season of giving for us. It is our pleasure to help grant this Christmas wish for Zoey and her friends. In this holiday season, we wish them a speedy recovery, and health and happiness for the future."
