Colors for Colette – This Year’s Event
On Saturday, August 13th, the sidewalks surrounding Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital radiated the love, talent and hope of artists young and old. Everywhere I looked there were smiles. As a result, it was clear that the children of Rainbow Hospital had champions. Each champion was willing to give of themselves to advance the care of children. However, the love wasn’t limited to the sidewalks around the hospital! Many supported our event from afar–through donations and spreading the mission as well as through prayers! In fact, all this love paid off: this year’s Colors for Colette season raised $20,000!!! We received an incredible $10,000 through our online giving website, as well as an additional $10,000 through business sponsorships and gifts. I cannot thank those of you who supported Colors for Colette enough for the part you played in this incredibly triumphant season!
As promised, we will be donating $15,000 to Rainbow’s pediatric oncology research department. Furthermore, this donation will be joined with our prayers for treatment advances that will transform the care that children with cancer receive. Finally, the remainder of the funds will be split between Rainbow’s Oncology and Intensive Care units. These funds will aim to alleviate some of the immediate suffering children and families face. Each one in their unique journeys to wellness.
As we close out this year’s Colors for Colette season, I hope you will take some time to celebrate with us, to savor the beauty and hope that was created together. Enjoy some pictures from the event and let the “colors” of Colette’s life bring YOU some joy.
