We Grant Dreams as Unique as the Seniors We Serve

Everyday Dreams

These smaller dreams make an enormous impact! Everyday Dreams cost less than $250 and include dreams that seniors may think of every day, like riding a motorcycle again, celebrating a very special anniversary dinner, or even going zip-lining.

Bucket List Dreams

These larger-than-life dreams cost a max of $5,000, and have included a trip to Indy 500 Practice Day, a Hot Air Balloon Ride, Skydiving, and meeting KISS. If it’s on a senior’s bucket list, we can help make it happen!

Group Dreams

Some dreams are even sweeter when they’re shared with friends. Group Dreams consist of 20-200 people, and often involve partnerships with outside organizations. These dreams have included a VIP trip on the Belle of Louisville, a Detroit Tigers Game, and Tethered Hot Air Balloon Experiences.

Honor Flight

We’re proud to partner with Honor Flight to fulfill the dreams of seniors who have served our country. Live a Dream will pay for guardians to accompany senior veterans on these special trips to Washington, D.C., which include deluxe tour bus service, meals, snacks, souvenirs and more.

DreamVR

The arrival of Virtual Reality in our world has opened the door to nearly limitless possibilities. With this technology, we can soar through the skies, explore ancient ruins, and experience life in ways that were once only possible in our dreams.
