Nicklaus Children Hospital & Joe Dimaggio Children Hospital Halloween Event.
In October of 2016 Angel Watching Over Me hosted two Halloween parties for Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital and Miami Children's Hospital. Through this event we were able to create a fun and festive experience for children with different illnesses who didn’t get the opportunity to celebrate Halloween due to their ailments. We brought in costumes, candy donated by Dylan’s Candy Shop and Sugarman Candy, pizza, a cotton candy machine, a popcorn machine, our house DJ Daniel Crespo, and a face painter. Much like ‘trick or treating’ the children were provided large halloween bags to go around the tables picking up all of the goodies they desired to take to their rooms.
It was so beautiful to see that these children felt just like any child should on Halloween, they forgot where they were for just those couple of hours. One of the children’s mother even came up to our volunteers and said “this is the first time in 5 weeks that my daughter has smiled.”
