Besides posting some fascinating stories I’ve started my first "category" of postings called "Special Events – SAVE THE DATE!" for my boards, favorite causes, work and other events I want everyone to know about, help me promote, attend or things I simply find facinating. Some will be press releases, some a simple paragraph, others could be a wild card. Enjoy – and of course attend or help me promote them!

MICKEY, MINNIE TEAM UP WITH CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION FOR SPECIAL DISNEY ON ICE:
SJ KID’S HEALTH NIGHT

HELP SPREAD THE WORD:
Please forward to your email lists, post in your office – and don’t forget – tickets make great gifts.

The Children’s Healthcare Foundation of South Jersey (CHF) teams up with six non-profit healthcare partners to raise critical funds and public awareness for children’s healthcare programs at “SJ Kid’s Health
Night at Disney on Ice: Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Journey,” on Thursday, October 14, 2004, at 7pm, at the Wachovia Center, Philadelphia, PA. The CHF and partnering healthcare organizations will be on hand before the event with information tables, giveaways and more. “SJ Kid’s Health Night Tickets”
are $25 for lower level, center section seating – half-off regular admission prices of which range $50-$25.

LOWER LEVEL, CENTER SECTION SEATING – STARTING WITH THE FRONT ROW is available now – and will be sold on first come/first serve basis. ALSO – WIN A MEET AND GREET WITH THE DISNEY CHARACTERS. Every ticket purchased before September 14, 2004 throug the CHF will be entered in a free drawing.

“SJ Kid’s Health Night brings together children’s healthcare groups from across South Jersey and raises the public’s awareness about their work,” said Executive Director. “It’s a win-win for all – a
night of family fun at half the cost AND you will support programs for the health and well being of our most precious resource – our children.”

“Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Journey” transports audiences straight from their Wachovia Center seats into the magical worlds of Disney’s Lilo & Stitch, the Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan. No luggage is
required as tour guides Mickey and Minnie lead the group to a hula in Hawaii with best friends Lilo and Stitch; an aquatic adventure with Ariel and Sebastian in their undersea kingdom; a playful romp with all 101 Dalmatians; and a flight of fancy over starry skies with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell.

Tickets purchased in the name of “SJ Kid’s Health Night” and the “Children’s Healthcare Foundation of South Jersey” will support programs and services that benefit the health, development and other needs of South Jersey’s children, as well as advancing and supporting South Jersey health facilities, research and resources. Recent grants supported by the event include: $7,500 to Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center for a new play/ toy room within a newly constructed pediatric unit; $5,500 to send children with cancer to summer camp with their siblings; $750 to help children who have recently lost a parent or loved one; and $2,500 for scholarships to children with learning disabilities.

Since 1986, more than $440,000 has been raised and awarded by the CHF. Grants are awarded at least four times a year to institutions that benefit the health and well being of South Jersey’s children, or to South Jersey children whose family can demonstrate a financial and healthcare need.

The CHF and partners only benefit when you call and purchase tickets directly through the CHF. For ticket information call (856) 983-3308, e-mail disney@childrenshealthcaresj.org or visit http://www.childrenshealthcaresj.org.
