The Associates Committee of The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center: 19th Annual Bunny Hop.
On Tuesday, March 9, 2010, The Associates Committee of The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center will host the 19th Annual Bunny Hop at FAO Schwarz. A Society tradition and the most high profile family event of the year, the Bunny Hop is a thrilling evening for families and children of all ages. For the second consecutive year the event is sponsored by Papo d’Anjo, the leading European designer of fine children’s clothing. Over 1,000 guests including The Society’s members, celebrity guests and New York families will attend and enjoy a carnival atmosphere and a variety of hands-on activities such as cupcake decorating; face painting; fun photo booths; dress up areas; live animal presentations; entertainment from magicians, DJs, and favorite cartoons characters; and private shopping. Event Co-Chairs are Laura Harris, Celeste Boele, and Annabelle Fowlkes.
Proceeds from this year’s Bunny Hop will benefit the Associates Committee’s pledge to raise $2 million over five years for the Pediatric Family Housing Endowment. When pediatric patients travel from out of town for treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering, their families take on the added cost of finding a place to stay. Many of the treatments require patients and their families to be at the cancer center for weeks, or even months, at a time. Recognizing that such an expense can be an enormous burden on families, this new endowment will support overnight stays at nearby accommodations, such as the Ronald McDonald House, for families of pediatric patients who are undergoing medical treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
6:00 - 8:00 PM.
Co-Chairs and Honorees (when applicable):
Laura Harris, Celeste Boele, Annabelle Fowlkes.
