Important Information Regarding Celebrity, Athlete, Concerts & Sports Team Requests:  Wish fulfillment of these types of wishes is also dependent on the compliance, availability and arrangements with the celebrity, athlete or sports team. These requests are at the mercy of the celebrity and management. Response time may be even greater.

While we attempt to fulfill your entire request, that is not always possible and is at the sole discretion of these entities and what they can provide for us. Please also note that we cannot bring a celebrity of any kind to a personal residence.
1. How many people need to attend the meeting or event? (List names & ages)

(Please answer this question honestly. We have no control over Celebrities or Athletes availability or compliance to our requests. This includes tickets to sporting events. However, if they are unavailable, we attempt to fulfill the request in some way, but only if the nominee is willing to accept an alternative other than a personal meeting or attending the concert or sporting event. Please be aware there is still no guarantee of their compliance.)
YES, I am willing to accept an alternative if the celebrity or Athlete is unavailable to meet me, or if I cannot attend the concert or sporting event.
NO, I am only interested in meeting the celebrity or athlete if they are available or attending the concert or sporting event in person.
