The Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) hosted an Art Night at the Ronald McDonald House near Loyola Medical Center on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. Nancy Nunez, godmother to Alyssa, accompanied Yoli, Alyssa’s mom and President of AAFH, to lead this Art Night with the children and their family members who were staying at the RMH.
The parents of a young boy were excited to see their son participate in the drawing and coloring activity during the Art Night. Another young girl was not feeling well initially, however within 15 minutes of the Art Night beginning, she started drawing, smiling and enjoying the event. It is always a pleasure to watch the happiness our activities bring to the young patients and their families.
Nancy and Yoli encouraged and praised the efforts of the artists while everyone enjoyed themselves.
Special thanks to David Pittner, Resident Manager at RMH, for facilitating the Art Night and accepting a separate donation of Alyssa Starter Art Kits.
