ViaCord recently had the honor of teaming up with Trueheart Events and many other fabulous organizations to benefit the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. On Saturday, June 2, 2012, over one hundred deserving children and their families from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Children’s Rare Disease Network attended The Wonderland Suite, an Alice & Wonderland themed event where there were many fun activities, giving celebrities, live entertainment and delicious food.
ViaCord hosted the Children’s Accessories Lounge: a place where stars and children were able to work with the ViaCord style team to make beaded bracelets, adorn themselves with feathered hair extensions and stick on temporary tattoos. The Children’s Accessories Lounge was the hit of the party as children got to interact with celebrities and help decorate each other.
Some celebrities that came to support the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and their patients were: recording artist Cody Simpson, Disney star Carlon Jeffrey, “Private Practice” star Griffin Gluck, “Hart of Dixie” stars Claudia Lee and Carla Renata, “Mad Men” star Sam Page, “American Idol” contestant Casey Abrams and so many more.
Raffle tickets were available for purchase by partygoers for some awesome prizes for children with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the Children’s Hospital.
With the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles being recognized as one of the best in the nation for pediatric care and research, it was an amazing experience for the ViaCord Team to take part in to help benefit the hospital’s work and, most importantly, see the smiles on the faces of the patients who attended.
