April 16th, 2019 by

Dreams Come True, the First Coast’s only locally based nonprofit organization dedicated to fulfilling dreams of children battling life-threatening illnesses, will commemorate its 4,000th dream at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16, at Beaver Toyota St. Augustine.

WHO: Dreams Come True & Beaver Toyota St. Augustine
WHAT: 4,000th Dreamer Celebration
WHEN: Tuesday, April 16 at 4:00 p.m.
WHERE: Beaver Toyota St. Augustine 2995 US-1 South St. Augustine, FL 32086

Dreams Come True will host a dream party for its 4,000th dreamer, Logan Silva, who was diagnosed with medulloblastoma in October 2017. Logan and his family will be heading to the Atlantis at Paradise Island, Bahamas at the end of April for his 5-night stay at the tropical resort.

Beaver Toyota St. Augustine raised more than $6,500 in October 2018 for Logan’s dream trip. The funds were raised as part of the dealerships’ WOW Partner of the Month program. During the month, Beaver Toyota donated a portion of the proceeds from each vehicle sold toward Dreams Come True.

Following his diagnosis, Logan underwent surgery to remove his brain tumor. After experiencing posterior fossa syndrome, he courageously retrained his brain how to walk, talk and eat over the course of two months. Logan endured six weeks of proton radiation therapy and completed six rounds of chemotherapy.

Founded in 1984, Dreams Come True is the only 100 percent community donor-funded nonprofit whose vision is to grant the dream of every First Coast child battling a life-threatening illness, while bringing them hope and joy throughout their medical journey.
