Tinsel on the Town benefits: Child Life Program

The Child Life Services department at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital helps reduce stress and anxiety for patients and families during a hospital stay or medical crisis. 

Child Life Specialists empower their patients in many ways, including: 
  • Support and coping during painful procedures
  • Preparation for surgeries through medical play
  • Expressive activities to encourage normalcy and fun

These types of services are often not reimbursable by health insurance, and are primarily sustained by generous community donations. Join us at Tinsel on the Town to support the patient- and family-centered care this critical department provides. You can ensure that kids feel like kids as they experience illness or injury by joining us in support of this program.

When: Friday, December 6 at 6 pm

Where: Greater Tacoma Convention Center

Cost: $150/person (tables of 10 available for purchase) Must be 21 years or older.
