Great To Be Here Donates T-shirts to Children's Memorial Hospital

Chicago business, Great To Be Here Tees, made a recent donation of children and infant clothing to Children's Memorial Hospital. The fashion design company has worked in conjunction with CHICAGO Dance Marathon, which directly benefits the hospital.

PRLog - April 8, 2011 - CHICAGO -- "Where kids come first." This is the slogan for Children's Memorial Hospital, Illinois' only  hospital that's exclusively for kids. In 2010, CMH treated over 146,000 patients and its Family Services programs are the best in the nation. CMH relies heavily on funding to support its growing number of patients. One such organization that directly benefits CMF is CHICAGO Dance Marathon (CDM). CDM is a 13 hour "dancing marathon" event - participants must stand on their feet for the entirety of the event in honor of the children receiving treatment there. Since September, business entrepreneur Christopher Festa, has worked closely with CDM. His company, Festa Parties (mastermind behind the insanely popular "Twelve Bars of Xmas - TBOX" event) was a Bronze Sponsor at their event held on Saturday, March 19, 2011 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Chicago. Festa led a team at CDM, which came at no surprise; TBOX is an 18 hour long pub crawl through Chicago's Wrigleyville neighborhood, so 13 hours of fun was a walk in the park for him and his crew. Festa's second business, Great To Be Here Tees, recently donated children and infant apparel to the children at the hospital. This is just one of the many charities Festa and his businesses have supported over the years.
