Community: Make-A-Wish Kid Receives Trailer from Findlay RV


The Stacey family of Las Vegas was the recipient of a 27-foot travel trailer thanks to Findlay RV, Findlay Management, Findlay Toyota and Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada.

This story originally appeared in the Hermann Herald.

Make-A-Wish of Nevada combined forces with Findlay RV to present a Forest River Wildwood 27-foot travel-trailer to a family in need during the recent Monster Energy NASCAR Cup South Point 400 weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Andrew Stacey, 4, of Las Vegas has a life-threatening illness, and the trailer enables him to travel with his family when they take trips. Findlay RV sold the Forest River Wildwood trailer to the family at cost and, in addition, donated all of the hitch work needed so the unit could be towed, while Findlay Toyota and Findlay Management donated a combined total of $10,000 to the cause.

Andrew has medical needs that preclude him from going camping and on other trips with his family. With the trailer, everything was available including a refrigerator and air conditioning to keep his medications cool.

Making the presenting were Make-A-Wish board member Kevin Camper, Findlay RV General Manager Reuben Figueroa, LVMS publicist Jeff Motley, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada CEO Caroline Ciocca and Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada wish manager Tylar Pendgraft.

“We love helping a family like we did here, especially considering that we partnered with Make-A-Wish Foundation,” Figueroa said. “Andrew is only 4 years of age, and he can continue to camp with his family without worrying. He has a safe environment now.”

Findlay Auto Group CFO Tyler Corder said the company teamed up to make the presentation possible.

“We were thrilled to get involved when we heard about the wish request for Andrew and his family,” Corder said. “We pulled in resources from our corporate office, Findlay Toyota and Findlay RV to make it happen. It’s a great feeling to be able to partner with Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada to fulfill this child’s wish. We hope the family gets many years of enjoyment from the travel trailer.”
