“ ...for one day to make it all go away... ”

- Tina Huls, Wells Enterprises

Adopted By: Wells Blue Bunny Ice Cream

Brogun, 3, of Freeman loves being outside and wished to have his very own Rainbow Play System. Among family, friends and new friends, Brogun's wish came true on Saturday, October 12.

He was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart syndrome, a disease which has required five surgeries during his short life.  

His very own Rainbow Play System in his back yard is something his parents know Brogun will enjoy for a long time.

Brogun, his younger sister Kendall, and parents, Tom and Kelli, welcomed guests for a Saturday afternoon wish party complete with pizza and Blue Bunny ice cream treats!  After an official ribbon cutting and dedication, it was time for food followed by trying out his new towering toy.

Among the guests were seven employees from Wells Enterprises, the makers of Blue Bunny ice cream.  As part of a national effort by Wells is granting 100 wishes nationwide.  With the close proximity to LeMars, IA, the employees enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of Brogun’s special day.  Brogun’s was Wells’ 96th wish.  Visit for more information about the national celebration.

“Just to see the look on their face, to see what they’ve been through, and for one day to make it all go away, I think it’s very important to them and their family,” Tina Huls, Wells Enterprises said. 

As tradition, guests were encouraged to go down the slide to help celebrate Brogun’s special day.  Most guests did, including his 88- year-old great grandmother!

“We chose something he will always remember,” Kelli said.  

By looking at the smile on Brogun’s face, we think this is a day he will talk about for a very long time.
