Circle of Friends

Berman Family and Friends

Dear Friends and Family,

As the holidays are approaching, we know so many people who seek opportunities to give back, especially where they can involve kids in this effort.  In honor of the incredible care our family received at Lurie's this year, and to provide something special for kids who are inpatient at the hospital, we are organizing a fundraiser.  Our kids are going to forgo one Chanukah present this year, and we will donate that money to the Lurie’s Circle of Friends Foundation, specifically the Patient Play and Toy Fund.  This fund is requesting money, instead of toys, to allow the hospital to purchase toys for kids who play differently and cannot benefit from the more common toy donations.  This concept really resonated with my kids who celebrated Respecting Each Other’s Differences week at school last year.

We would welcome anyone who wanted to join us in this effort!   We will celebrate the kindness of all contributing families with a commemorative check presentation at the hospital (you are welcome to join-date/time is tbd) and also with a holiday ice cream party at our house (details to follow).  No contribution is too small!
