Gabriel Turns Up the Heat

Gabriel's wish to have season tickets to the Miami HEAT

“ Gabriel’s wish was the ultimate celebration as he beat cancer! ”


- Wish granter

Gabriel knows how to celebrate and beating cancer was worthy of the biggest celebration. Since he adores basketball, he wished to have season tickets for his favorite team, the Miami HEAT. Before his first game as a season ticket holder, Gabriel’s wish granters presented him with HEAT gear, including a Whiteside jersey. Game night tipped off with a luxurious limo ride for him and his guest to AmericanAirlines Arena.

The pre-game festivities included an incredible dining experience at the Dewar’s Club House and a meet and greet with the HEAT dancers and the mascot, Burnie. Enhancing Gabriel’s wish, he was also featured on the big screen after professing another dream of being famous. The crowd cheered when Gabriel high fived the HEAT team during halftime while celebrating the end of a long journey. “Gabriel’s wish was the ultimate celebration for him as he beat cancer! As an ultimate HEAT fan, this was a slam dunk wish experience,” his wish granter Patricia Martinez said.

According to Stephen Pettlon, HEAT ticket sales manager, “Gabriel had a wonderful experience with many memories he’ll be able to share with family and friends long after this season.”
