Rainbow Pediatrics will host a fundraiser to benefit the Make-A-Wish® New Jersey on Sunday, September 20 from 1 – 4 p.m. at their Clermont office located at 2041 Rt. 9 South.
The fundraiser will include a ‘meet and greet’ with The Frozen Sisters, as well as crafts, face painting, snacks and a bake sale. The event is free to attend, however Rainbow is requesting a $5 donation for each child – all proceeds go to Make-A-Wish® New Jersey.
Each day, Make-A-Wish® New Jersey grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the Garden State. Their belief that a wish experience can be a game-changer inspires them to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids they serve.
Rainbow Pediatrician Dr. Ava Cavaliere – who is organizing the event – could not agree more. Her son Antonio – a recent “Wish” recipient – was born with Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) a birth defect and congenital heart condition that affects normal blood flow through the heart.
“Make-A-Wish® New Jersey gave Antonio a wish of his choice – and Antonio chose to meet the players of The New York Giants and attend a game. He still beams to this day when we talk about the experience – the joy this wish brought to our family was a life-changer for all of us,” Cavaliere said.
According to Rainbow pediatrician Dr. Thomas Dierkes:
“Rainbow Pediatrics works with our pediatric families with life-threatening health situations and Make-A-Wish® New Jersey to make our children’s wishes come true. We hope that the funds raised from this event in some small part help the Foundation to continue its miraculous mission.”
