Due to the pandemic, the Children’s Hospital in Mount Washington had to cancel its storybook gala. But there is still a way to support the hospital and get some nice stuff along the way. This morning with more, board member Allison Cohen is there. Hi Alison, nice to meet you. Yes you too. Thank you so much for letting me be there today. I’m so excited to talk about the incredible auction we’ve put together. And we’ve got over 150 packs that the volunteer committee has worked extremely hard on and you know, we’re just counting on the community to join in supporting the hospital and bidding on these incredible items. You can do your Christmas shopping early. There is literally something for the whole family in this option. Tell us a little bit about what Washington Pediatrics does. So mad at Washington Pediatric Hospital is a special hospital for children in the Baltimore area. They also have locations in PG County and Harford County, but they help kids with things like rehabilitation therapies after traumatic brain injury or surgery due to illness and you know, one of the big things the gala and fundraising is going to this year is it buy equipment for the new competence center they have to help children with their occupational and rehabilitation therapies. And they just do so many great things for kids that if they’re too young once they’re in the Nicu, they go home from the Hopkins University of Maryland. They go to the Children’s Hospital in Mount Washington and they do a great job teaching their parents how to take care of them when they get back home. So it really is a special place and we know of course it’s disappointing that people can’t get back together for the storybook gala. But you’ve found a way for people to participate online and you’ve got a lot of fun auction items this year. Can you talk about it? We do. So we have some really cool trips. Um, one of them is to go to SNL in New York and it comes with a $1000 marriage certificate. So your hotel is all set. And er, we also have a trip to Colorado for those who are ready to travel again. It’s five days, four nights and even Colorado and an apartment. And then we have tickets to the BMW Golf Championship next year, which will be in Wilmington Delaware. So don’t go far right now and you may get in the way with a few players And for the gentlemen who want to treat their wives to a very special Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever holiday you’re celebrating this year, Radcliffe Jewelers donated $3500 gift card to go along Go shopping. So there are really incredible things. There are also toys for kids so you can really treat them this holiday season and er, you know, treat Mom and Dad and the grandparents too, we have a giant scrabble game too. That’s really nice for those who have a bit more trouble in this time. And of course people can do all of this online. So where should people go to participate?
