CHOG fountain dedication to be held Tuesday

Children’s Hospital of Georgia officials will hold a dedication ceremony for the new outdoor fountain for patients and families at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, in the front circle at CHOG.

The project – which includes sculpted dolphins hovering above the water – was funded through a $250,000 portion of the donations from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partners Walmart and Sam’s Club.

Special guests will include patients, families and representatives from these two major CHOG supporters. Walmart and Sam’s Club stores sell Miracle Balloons, take donations at the register and hold bake sales, contests and other events to raise money for CHOG each year during their CMN Hospitals campaigns.

The idea for the fountain came about from a dying child’s desire to play outdoors with his dog during his last days.

Light refreshments will be served at the event, and all are welcome to attend.

 

 

Pie In the Face

Local Walmart employees at the Wrightsboro Road location got clever raising money for kids at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

One may call it total anarchy, but we call it decent fundraising.

For $1, employees threw whipped cream pies from a calculated distance; $5 pies were thrown directly in a manager’s face; and $10 cakes were thrown directly in the faces of those selected for the firing range.

This campaign twist is part of a 41-day Children’s Miracle Network Campaign at 15 Walmarts and Sam’s Clubs that ends June 11.
