Friday, December 14th: Annual Holiday Party in NYC!
This is our chance to give back to our volunteers, who make this whole thing happen. There will be dinner, dancing, and drawing fun. Can’t wait to celebrate another year, drawing together for brave kids!
When: Friday, December 14th, 7-10PM
Where: Invite only.
Saturday, December 15th: Bellevue Hospital
Rise and shine after the holiday party to make holiday cards with the Bellevue kids! These children are being treated for psychiatric issues and are often unable to see their families for long periods of time. In some cases, they are at Bellevue because their families felt they were no longer able to care for them. So let’s bring a little holiday cheer their way.
When: Saturday, December 15th, 10:45AM-12PM
Where: Bellevue Hospital
462 First Avenue b/w 26th & 28th Streets
New York, NY 10016- MAP
Wednesday, December 18th: Mount Sinai Hospital
Showtime! We’ll teach the kids how to draw via Mount Sinai’s closed circuit live TV show, KidZone. The children are equipped with art kits in their rooms so they can draw along with us and they can also use their phones to call in with questions and comments!
When: Wednesday, December 18th, 5:30-7PM
Where: Mount Sinai Hospital
1184 5th Avenue (between 98th and 100th Streets)
New York, NY 10029- MAP
