Children’s Holiday Party

The annual Face the Future Foundation Holiday Patient Party was a huge success again this year. Over 600 patients, families, volunteers, Face the Future Foundation Board Directors, Associate and Teen Board members, UIC Craniofacial Center doctors and staff, and supporters attended. Face painting, cookie decorating, mural coloring and other activities filled the afternoon. Vienna® Beef hot dogs and homemade cookies were the popular lunch items. The highlight was Santa’s visit. Santa’s helpers gave each child a present.

The Foundation extends its sincere gratitude to everyone who volunteered, donated gifts, wrapped gifts, donated food and supplies, and donated time, talent and resources to help make the party such a success. A big thank you to Dr. and Mrs. Patel for graciously opening their home for the gift drop-off and wrapping; Michelle Krage of Star Events, and her team for all the planning, coordination and production that went into the event; Amy Giordano and GUS Giordano Dance School for providing the exciting and lively entertainment. 60 dancers prepared for over a month and performed 8 different dance numbers!!
