Thank You From PCH
The following is from Anthem Golf and Country Clubs General Manager Brad Harrington’s December “Club Update”…
Thank you to Brian Billideau, Anthem Club Member and founder of Smiles 4 Sick Children, and all of our Members who lent a helping hand to donate more than 3,000 toys to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Saturday, December 21. More than 100 Members gathered to load nearly 25 cars full of toys and caravanned to the hospital to make the donation. I had the opportunity to join in with my oldest daughter Charley; this was an experience that neither of us will forget. It was a day to be very proud of the Anthem community and Anthem Country Club as well as to make a difference in the lives of children that need it most. Thank you Brian for creating this outstanding organization. We look forward to working closer with you in the future to provide more smiles! You can check out some highlights of the day here or by going to our Facebook page.
Your donations matter. This year more than 150,000 children will be living proof of that.
More than 2,500 of them will be brought to our Trauma Center, many with life-threatening injuries. Some patients will need ongoing treatment for chronic diseases, while more than 300 of them will learn they have cancer. More than 16,500 will need surgery, and another 85,000 will come through the doors of our Emergency Department. Some patients will need a life-saving transplant. Others may need life-changing treatment or therapy.
