The Dream Factory, Inc., a national dream fulfilling organization for critically and chronically ill children, announced that award-winning teen recording artist Dalton Cyr has been selected as a National Ambassador for the organization. Cyr, just 13 years old and managed in L.A., is already touring and working on his second album. He has been named one of the most promising songwriters in the world and has fans in 149 countries.
A rising singer/songwriter from Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Cyr will be added to the Dream Factory’s list of celebrities who bring big hearts and a commitment to making dreams come true for critically ill and chronically ill children aged 3 through 18 years old. The all-volunteer, non-profit organization which has granted more than 25,000 dreams, is the largest organization to grant dreams to chronically ill children and the second largest children’s wish-granting organization in the United States.
Anne Bunger, National Director and CEO of The Dream Factory Inc., says, “With the exposure that Dalton’s celebrity will bring to our organization, we hope to increase the number of Dream Factory chapters while adhering to the wishes of our founder that it remain a volunteer organization. As a National Ambassador Dalton will help increase our public exposure so that we may locate more children and be able to grant more dreams. In the process, we believe we will attract the attention of individuals who are looking for a rewarding opportunity, as well as national and corporate sponsorship.”
Dream Factory National Board Member, Laura Walitsky approached Cyr with the idea while he was in New York during his East Coast tour this summer. She says, “As a teenager who is overcoming obstacles to beat the odds and make his dreams come true, we believe Dalton has a perspective that will enable him to relate to sick children who face challenges every day and persevere. We are seeking respected, influential, members of our society to help promote our organization and demonstrate to these kids that they can dream big and that dreams can come true. We believe Dalton fits that bill.”
Cyr says, “I’m very honored and proud to represent The Dream Factory. Through my performances for Wolfson Children’s Hospital, I’ve met kids who work so hard just to survive. They inspire me. As a National Ambassador, I hope to help make more dreams come true and inspire people to start Dream Factory chapters when there isn’t one in their city or join in helping existing chapters.”
