Other celebrity artists included past and present Driscoll patients who created designs for the items.
“This is one of the largest, most exciting annual events we have, and the Auxiliary to Driscoll Children’s Hospital is proud to put it on,” said Lizette Saenz, director of volunteer services. “We look forward to rolling out the red carpet and putting the spotlight on our little stars.”
For this annual tradition, Driscoll patients from throughout South Texas drew pictures for nine holiday cards and a Christmas storybook. Community members selected the artwork to be used. Proceeds from sales of the items will go toward the Marcia K. Wilcox scholarship, which has benefited more than 90 Driscoll cancer patients since its inception.
The children’s artwork was unveiled after they entered Driscoll’s auditorium on a red carpet amid camera flashes and applause. Then they autographed their work for family, friends and fans. Following the celebration, they were treated to a limo ride to Gattitown for some food and fun.
The holiday cards and Christmas storybook can be purchased through Driscoll’s website, www.driscollchildrens.org, and at the hospital’s Carousel Gift Shop. For more information, call (361) 694-5011 or 1-800-DCH-LOVE.
