Recap written by Meghan Arsenault and Deirdre Lombardi
Harboring Hearts teamed up with the American Heart Association, Sephora, and ZICO Pure Coconut Water to host the Legion of Hearts event in the pediatric cardiology department at Mount Sinai Hospital on October 7th, 2013. About 20 volunteers joined us to provide a morning filled with cheer, laughter, and a heart-healthy breakfast!
Over 50 patients and their families were able to take a break from their busy day and medical routine to have their face painted or makeup and nails done by makeup artists from Sephora.
Wonder Woman made a surprise appearance and helped patients decorate their very own superhero capes.
Everyone was delighted when Sharon Bush arrived with Teddy Share Bears for the young patients.
Skylar Brandt, from the American Ballet Theatre, made a little ballerina’s day by giving her a signed pair of ballet pointe shoes.
Sunny Norton was able to capture the many memorable moments with his photography throughout the event. Many thanks to all of our guests, volunteers, and supporters who joined us to make the Legion of Hearts community event a huge success!
