Benefiting the Special Needs of Advocate Children’s Hospital – Oak Lawn
Proceeds from Bash 2014 will be directed to the Special Needs Fund of Advocate Children’s Hospital - Oak Lawn to address those “zebra” needs that are unique and special to the hospital. Philanthropy can provide resources and flexibility to respond quickly to new ideas and programs, and to help pay for future projects that are not fully funded by capital dollars. The Special Needs Fund will allow us to purchase essential new medical equipment, to provide training for caregivers, to offer support services to patients/families, to provide financial assistance that enables children to get the care they need or to launch a critical new program.
