Niko McClure may appear to be the world’s youngest car salesman. But he’s an 8-year-old with a voracious appetite for vehicles.

“They knew I liked Nissans, Kia’s and Mazdas and let me just say I like cars.”

So after seeing the commercial for the vehicles being raffled off in this year’s 2 Cars 2 Winners campaign for the St. Francis Foundation, Shonda McClure had the clever idea to have Niko’s 8th birthday party at Sparks Nissan. This car enthusiast was thrilled.

You probably wouldn’t guess from seeing this bundle of energy now but Niko spent a month and a day at St. Francis Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when he was born. He was born ten weeks early and his lungs hadn’t developed properly. For Shonda, it was a scary experience seeing her child in such a fragile state.

“I said please find a bed for him at St. Francis and the nurse came back and said they accepted him at St. Francis.

“I got a healthy baby boy and St. Francis got a supportive person always in my family.”

Who knows, maybe for his 9th birthday Niko will have his birthday party at Van Trow next year!
