Ferrari "Senior" Portraits | Jeremy Bloom Wish of a Lifetime

Jeremy Bloom is a young entrepreneur who is using his resources and recognition as an Olympic gold medalist and NFL player to honor the lifetime wishes of one of our often forgotten populations–senior citizens.

On an August afternoon in Fort Worth TX, 76-year-old Billye got the opportunity to take a drive in her dream sports car thanks to Jeremy Bloom’s Wish of a Lifetime Foundation and DFW Drive Your Dream.

I was thrilled to be contacted by the foundation and I knew I wanted to be a part of this great-grandmother’s ride of a lifetime in a Ferrari F430!  With a sticker price of around $200,000– this Italian sports car takes all of four seconds to go from parked to 60 mph and boasts a top speed of 196 mph.  Billye’s dream was about to come true in a big way!  (You can actually experience that for yourself …without the price tag…and probably not at top speed)!

Billye arrived via van with excited friends in tow and stepped off into the world of Ferrari.  I think she was genuinely surprised to be greeted like a celebrity by cameras and local news crews.  Check out her afternoon with friends, family and a wish of a lifetime…
