When we were asked to donate to the Daisy Day Luncheon, a fundraising event taking place on May 8th, 2014 benefiting the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, we couldn’t wait to get involved. Our contribution of a 37 Key Schoenhut Toy Piano will be included in an auction to raise funds for this year’s beneficiary, The Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment. As a company that strives to enhance the lives of children through music and play, any cause related to the health and wellness of babies is near and dear to our hearts at Schoenhut.
Each year, the luncheon event offers a live auction, silent auction, raffle and fashion show from one of the industry’s top designers thanks to the sponsorship of Saks Fifth Avenue – also one of our retailers! Past events welcomed fashion presentations from Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischka, Oscar de le Renta and more. This year’s guest of honor will be the CFDA Award winning Zac Posen along with his Fall 2014 collection. In addition to live and silent auctions, there will also be an online auction that goes live on April 21st, 2014.
Over the past 15 years the Daisy Day Luncheon has raised more than $16 million to support programs at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.” – DaisyDay.CHOP.edu
As a fundraiser organized entirely by volunteers, The Daisy Day Luncheon has made an impressively huge difference in the lives of families and individuals in need of top quality healthcare. We’re proud to support this cause and hope you can find a way to help, too! We’re anxious to see if donations raised at this year’s event will surpass last year’s $1.5 Million raised for the Pain Management Program.
