NYMH Sickle Cell Center, 10/25/11
IWF’s Franz Palomares drew with kids bravely undergoing treatment for sickle cell disease at New York Methodist today. It’s very important that these children attend their scheduled checkups so we were happy to do our best to make the kids’ time at the hospital more fun!
Mount Sinai Hospital, 10/04/11
We partied it up with the kids of Mount Sinai, drawing party animals with an animal puppet named, Panina, on the KidsZone TV show and also in the rec room with some sweet young artists. Thank you to volunteers, Ray Alma, Elana Amity (Event Leader), Joan Chiverton, Bil Donovan, Barbara Garrison, Joyce Pedretti and Elizabeth Winter.
