Fourteen year-old Louisa of Ballard may look like your average teen but in Billiards she’s a force to be reckoned with.
Louisa developed a love of playing pool while spending time at the Boys and Girls Club and now she will have the opportunity to master these skills at home with her very own pool room, compliments of Make-A-Wish, an organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Louisa, who is battling Acute Myelocytic Leukemia, wished to have a room makeover that includes a pool table with all of the accessories, a rug, bean bag chairs, and much more as her wish. Both of Louisa’s parents are architects, and have prepared their home for this exciting makeover.
Olhausen Billiards in Tennessee donated the pool table, and personalized it with the Make-A-Wish logo, as well as Louisa’s name. Dawn Wilkinson, of Six Walls on Mercer Island, will be doing the interior design. Taylor Graham of the Seattle Sounders, who met Louisa in 2010, will be at the reveal. This wish was adopted by Sound Community Bank, who will also be involved in the reveal.
