Books for Babies | Donation Day | Saturday, August 24th | 10am - 5pm
Join us Saturday, August 24th to help support Batson Children's Hospital by bringing in art, (whether it be coloring, drawing, sketching, etc.), to donate to the hospital. Children have been proven to be less nervous before and after procedures with the use of art. Batsons is currently in desperate need of art supplies for the children, which is why we are asking that you consider donations.
Batson Children's Hospital is the flagship of Children's of Mississippi, party of the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC). As Mississippi's only children's hospital, they care for kids from across the state, offering everything from emergency care to highly specialized heart and cancer care. Batson Children’s Hospital treats about 150,000 children each year in more than 30 specialty areas, including newborn medicine, pediatric cardiology, neurology, and surgery. It houses the state’s only pediatric intensive care unit and emergency department along with Mississippi's only pediatric treatment programs for cancer, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, congenital heart defects, and more. These children housed here need our help.
We will have live Music from the Risky Whisky Boys from 12-4pm and will be serving brunch from 10-2pm to raise donations for the hospital!
