AUSTIN, (KXAN) — Two Make-A-Wish recipients were granted wishes at the University of Texas football game versus Baylor University on Saturday by St. David’s HealthCare.

St. David’s HealthCare, an official healthcare provider of Texas Athletics and the presenting sponsor of Saturday’s game granted the wishes of 7-year-old Jacqueline and 3-year-old Clay after the first quarter. The children were met by Hook Em’ and Elsa, the Disney princess, on the field and received Mickey Mouse ears and the news they would be going to Disney World.

“A wish can be a game-changer for a child and his or her family while facing medical challenges, which is why St. David’s HealthCare and Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas are harnessing the power of a wish for these children,” said a spokesperson for St. David’s HealthCare.
