Sinai Children’s Hospital Hosts 2nd Annual Children’s Fundraiser on November 4, 2011
On Friday, November 4th at 7pm Chicago time, I’ll be attending an event with Friends of Sinai in downtown Chicago. The event will take place at The River East Art Center in downtown Chicago and will benefit Sinai Children’s Hospital. As many of you know, Sinai Children’s Hospital is a children’s hospital on Chicago’s West Side, providing health care to many of Chicago’s under-served children who are at risk for chronic health problems. It will be interesting not only to hear about the things they are working on now but also connect with others that care deeply about the same issues.
Hi Everyone, I just wanted to alert you all to an upcoming event in downtown Chicago. The event is next week, and the organization is the Friends of Sinai organization, that supports the Sinai Children’s Hospital. So you’re probably wondering more about the hospital. Who are they? What are some of the things its working on? And what is this event all about? Well here is a bit more information.
The mission of the hospital is Friends of Sinai Children is a non-denominational, volunteer organization dedicated to developing resources and opportunities that enhance the quality of life of children touched by Sinai Children’s Hospital. The hospital was established in 2004, and today is the only children’s hospital on Chicago’s west side, provides health care to under-served children who are at greatest risk for chronic health problems, physical and emotional abuse and neglect.
Friends of Sinai Children is an associate board of young professionals dedicated to supporting Sinai Children’s Hospital.
Friends of Sinai Children has the unique opportunity to support a children’s hospital in an area with extreme need. Volunteers help shape the direction of the Board and make a true difference in the lives of the children treated at the hospital. And events like this help spread the word about the organization, the results that it is making, and help the organization to continue to make a difference.
In terms of the event, as I mentioned, the large event takes place on Friday, November 4th from 7:00-10:00pm at the River East Art Center. Tickets include cocktails, OPEN BAR, heavy appetizers and hors d’oeuvres, dancing, raffle, silent auction, and live entertainment, all of which benefit Sinai Children’s Hospital. The event will also be hosted by Stanford alumni Melanie Kannokada. I attended the event last year and it was a fantastic event. Plus, it’s a great excuse to dress up and support a worthy cause.
Hope to see you there.
