BENEFITING: HOPE FOR HENRY FOUNDATION
Hope for Henry is reinventing how hospitals care for seriously ill children and their families through innovative programs that entertain, reduce stress and empower children to be active participants in their own care. Founded in 2003 and led by social innovator, patient advocate and author Laurie Strongin, Hope for Henry has served more than 16,000 children at Children's National Medical Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, and other hospitals around the country. Hope for Henry honors the legacy of Henry Strongin Goldberg, a Washington, DC resident who died at age seven of a rare, fatal disease.
Bright Star Touring Theatre is one of America's largest professional touring theatre companies. Specializing in literary, curriculum and character-education based performances that are at home in any space, Bright Star has performed across the world in schools, communities, parks and more!
Together with Bright Star, Orchin Orthodontics is raising money to bring Bright Smiles to some of the bravest kids we know! We'll be raising money and awareness for Hope for Henry in our office, wearing superhero costumes every Wednesday, as well as bringing Bright Star to the kids for a performance filled with the laughter and joy Hope for Henry is all about!
The average cost of a Hope for Henry gift is $250, but every bit counts in making a difference for these amazing kids. That's why Orchin Orthodontics plans to match up to $2500 in donations so we can help bring as many Bright Smiles to Hope for Henry as we can!
