BENEFITING: Children's Miracle Network
Red Balloon is an annual benefit concert sponsoring music therapy programs at the UC Davis Children's Hospital in Sacramento, CA. By using music, we hope to save music. With music, we hope to create normalcy and make their hospital stay bearable, perhaps even pleasant.
Imagine being a four year old pediatric patient at the hospital. It sucks. You're being poked and probed. Everything hurts. You just want to go home. Although music therapy does not cure cancer nor does it greatly reduce your high WBC, it does create a sense of normalcy in a chaotic environment. Our hope is to continue these programs for years to come, hoping to bring a smile to these kids' faces during their daunting hospital stays.
