Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta- Egleston Hospital

It was time for another classic For a Day Foundation event at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta- Egleston. This event was comprised of the classic events called “Queen for a Day” and “Hero for a Day”. As always, as we set up there were rumblings on the AFLAC oncology/Hemoc wing of the foundation being in the building. The moment we arrived for set up a Little Girl named Della was ready and waiting for the event to start. Unfortunately, the event was not starting for 2 more hours! Della was the sweetest Little Girl and wanted to get the show on the road. She stared us down and waited and waited….it must have seemed like forever for her. She was the first to arrive and one of the last to leave at the end of the day!

4aDayWebGallery2014-0140We had the usual craft table that consisted of picture frame making, fake tattoos, face painting, a make-up table that also had nail polish for manicures and pedicures, cookie decorating table from Alon’s Bakery, a chocolate fountain from Americare Alliance, made to order smoothies from Arden’s Garden, and a crowning station! Both the Dekalb Police department and the Dekalb fire department were at the event. The police had McGruff come to meet the children and the fire department brought their trucks along with lots of goodies for the kids. All of the kids had a fantastic time and are looking forward to another event. Volunteers: Jessica Black, Erix Grizzle Miss United States 2009, Lindsey Turner founder of Golden Soldiers, Atiya Crockett Miss Georgia International Junior Miss 2011, Amy Chroeng Miss Georgia National Teenager 2011, Jazz Wilkens Miss Georgia USA 2012, Amy from Alon’s Bakery, and Katie Higgins.
A special thank you goes out to our two professional photographers that spent the entire day with us: Paul Biagui and Jillian Hayes.

Thank you for capturing memories that will last forever in the hearts of these kids. Our sponsors: Alon’s Bakery, Americare Alliance, Arden’s Garden…you are the best and your constant support and love is what gets us from event to event. A special thank you to Wetzel’s Pretzels…a new addition to the family. Your last minute donation was loved by the children! Queens: 12 Kings: 6

It is with heavy hearts that we report Sweet P has earned her angel wings. She was a bright little ray of sunshine at every event, always ready to give out hugs and take pictures! We will miss you and your spirited personality. It was a true honor to meet Peyton and follow her courageous journey. Please join us in sending love to Peyton's Brain's family during these difficult times.

Our hearts are broken to hear about the loss of this sweet angel. Karma was a kind and generous little girl, she spent an hour coloring this pillow case at our event and insisted on giving it to Cinderella. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. 💛💜💛

We will always Believe in Karmiracles.
