Christmas in July

Last night, July 19th, we hosted our annual Christmas in July.  Our families were treated to crafts, a visit from Santa Claus and lots of gifts all courtesy of Ronald McDonald House.  Our new friends, Mark & Sylvia, flew in from New Jersey to help with the event and to present the families with an additional special gift.  Ali’s Way hosted a yummy dinner. Events like this give our families a chance to focus on something other than long days at the hospital. Kids can be kids and  focus on having fun for a little while.  It was a great afternoon and night and our families loved it.
