Elmhurst Hospital Pediatric Gets Help From Kids And Clowns

On February 20, Elmhurst Hospital Center (EHC) and P.S. 19 Marino Jeantet school in Queens partnered together for a fundraising event named “Helping Kids Heal.” Twelve clowns, who are participants in this year’s New York Clown Alley East- West Tour, performed two one-hour back to back shows in the school’s auditorium to entertain school children in grades K through 5.

The children from the school attended the event for free thanks to the generosity of the community and local businesses. Helping Kids Heal raised over $2,500, with proceeds from event sponsorship donated to the Elmhurst Hospital Auxiliary for renovation of EHC’s pediatric treatment areas. The students of P.S. 19 also undertook fundraising in support of the hospital, raising an additional $800 for one of the busiest medical facilities.
