BENEFITING: LOLLIPOP THEATER NETWORK
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2012
Founded in 2001, Lollipop Theater Network (LOLLIPOP) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bringing the magic of movies (still in theaters) to children confined to hospitals nationwide due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses.
With the support of the leading Motion Picture Studios, LOLLIPOP has screened 250 films to pediatric patients nationwide. so they can enjoy them at the same time as their friends and family members. We are currently able to offer our program to children in hospitals in over 18 states. Since our start, our programming has reached 28,000 children and family members.
We roll out the red carpet, hand out movie tickets, and try to create a fun escape from the daily reality of illness these children face.
LOLLIPOP offers additional programming to the children who need it most: our monthly music session, Rhythm of Hope® in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, artist days with Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation Studios at hospitals in Los Angeles, and celebrity visits with arts and crafts activities.
The gift of your donation will help support LOLLIPOP's current programming in 2012, and help us to expand our reach to additional hospitals throughout the country.
