Pro Golfer Jason Day Makes a Wish Come True for Greensburg Boy
Our holiday luncheon is a special time we set aside at the end of each year for reflection, expressing gratitude for one another and thankfulness for all we’ve accomplished as a collective group. Top performers and outstanding team efforts within the #1 Cochran family are recognized at our holiday luncheon, but the true spirit of the season shines through when we get the chance to meet courageous kids in our community at the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
We had the pleasure of meeting 14-year old Dalton Bogac, a high school student at Greensburg Central Catholic High School. On stage at the 2015 luncheon, Will and Hugh Cochran interviewed Dalton about his passion for the game of golf and his favorite golfer, Jason Day. Dalton also talked about his love for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Cochran boys presented Dalton with a few holiday gifts including an authentic Kris Letang game jersey, four tickets to an upcoming Penguins game, various golf accessories, and more. They also let Dalton know his wish for a custom set of golf clubs will come true in the beginning of 2016, just in time for golf season. A member of the GCC Men’s Golf Team, Dalton is well on his way to becoming the next PGA champ!
Speaking of PGA champs, the story doesn’t end there. After the holiday luncheon, Kevin Mullen, Sales Manager at Cochran Infiniti Gallery of North Hills, reached out to Jason Day’s agent and was able to contact the current #2 ranked pro golfer in the world. Dalton now has an autographed Jason Day polo shirt from the PGA tour to go along with his custom-made golf clubs, with more on the way. We are thrilled to be able to help Dalton’s wish come true and look forward to seeing him out on the links this year!
Over the past four years, #1 Cochran has raised over $29,000 for Make-A-Wish through generous team member donations and gift contributions from the Cochran family. It’s become the highlight of our holiday celebration and we can’t think of a better way to welcome in the new year.
