Over 600 smiles were seen at the holiday party sponsored by Face The Future Foundation and StarEvents for the patients and their families of UI Health Craniofacial Center. Snowmen, giant candy canes and other holiday inflatables, Christmas trees and poinsettias created a festive mood. Attendees lined up for a buffet of Vienna® Beef hot dogs, mac and cheese, chips, cookies, an ice cream station and drinks. Extensions Dance Company danced and Sacred Heart Schools Chicago Glee Club sang. Lots of fun activities kept everyone busy. These included a photo booth; face painting; art and crafts; cookie decorating; a magician who created balloon animals; and an animal handler who brought a chinchilla, a gold and brown skunk and a parrot for guests to hold. Every family had a visit and photo with Santa and each child received a gift.
