Please join Make-A-Wish Orange County/Inland Empire along with the City of Ontario and the Ontario Convention Center to make a boys dream come true…


Five year old Jacob has a dream to fight crime with his favorite Super Hero, “The Amazing Spiderman.”  Join us on Thursday, August 22, as Make-A-Wish makes Jacob’s crime stopping dream a reality.

The adventure begins at the Ontario Police Department where Jacob learns of a crime in progress at the Ontario Convention Center.  Jacob will be transported in a SWAT armored vehicle to the Ontario Convention Center where he meets up with Spiderman to save the City of Ontario.

Jacob and Spiderman are joined by the Ontario Hazmat team and Bomb Squad where Jacob captures the villain “Venom” and places him in custody, once and for all.
