When a little boy faces a life-threatening medical condition, his wish to become a monster comes true. Read Maddex’s Make a Wish story here.
There is something extra special in being able to participate and witness a deserving boy’s dream come true. There was a buzz of excitement that filled Chicago and especially the Red Carpet Premiere of Madzilla. It was clear that so many people had a hand in making this event extraordinary.
The outcry of support that was documented in the behind the scenes video was impressive and clearly an emotional experience for all involved. Maddex’s family seemed to be incredibly grateful and gushing over his excitement for the film’s debut. Rahm Emanuel and Mike Ditka made cameo appearances in the film as well.
Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants has a history of supporting Chicago childrens’ charities, including managing their own Stefani’s Childrens’ Foundation. Stefani Restaurants was eager to get involved and support Make a Wish Foundation‘s production of Madzilla. Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants provided lunches during filming of the movie as well as appetizers for the red carpet premiere, hosted by Richard Roeper.
