Monteith Construction and NHRMC Foundation to host tile painting event for kids 03/10/2011
WILMINGTON – Area children have a chance to create artwork that will decorate the ceilings of the Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital and Nunnelee Pediatric Clinic. Monteith Construction and the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation are hosting Tiles for Smiles on Saturday, March 19 from 12-2 p.m. at the Lighthouse Café inside the Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital. For a $25 donation, children from the community are invited to paint a ceiling tile and enjoy family entertainment all for a good cause. The event will raise money for the Pediatric Pharmacy Fund, a fund established to help provide needed medication to pediatric patients whose families cannot afford them.
The Tiles for Smiles event will feature special appearances by the Top Cats—the Carolina Panthers’ cheerleaders—and the Wilmington Fire Department, as well as entertainment from Gracie the Clown, story time with Two Sisters Bookery, dancing sensations by DanZquest and styling by Sweet and Sassy. The public is invited to attend this event and donations to the Pediatric Pharmacy Fund are welcome.
Many families struggle with the high cost of medications for their children. The Pediatric Pharmacy Fund helps families in Southeastern North Carolina cover the cost of critical medications for their children. Children who are seen at the Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital or the Nunnelee Pediatric Clinic are eligible to benefit from the fund. Donations to the Pediatric Pharmacy Fund can be made at www.nhrmcfoundation.org and all contributions stay in the area to help local families.
New Hanover Regional Medical Center is the leading provider of quality and accessible health care in Southeastern North Carolina, delivering care to all in need, without the support of taxpayer dollars. The medical center takes seriously its responsibility as an economic engine for the community, creating more than 4,500 jobs directly and another 3,000 jobs indirectly.
