This testimonial came from Melanie Boutlet, Mom of little 3 year old Abygel, after a hospital visit from My Friend Huggles.
Abygael received her doll when she was 2 years old from her grandma. Since that day they are the best of friends, Abygael feeds her, dances with her and sings her songs. Her doll even follows her when she sleeps at grandma’s. After being admitted to the hospital following her accident, her Rubi doll continues to comfort her. She has been here 3 weeks now. – Melanie Boutlet
Thanks so much for taking the time to write to us! We love hearing from parents, grandparents & caregivers and it warms our hearts to know that our hospital doll donations are making a difference.
If you’re in the area, come out for an evening of dining, dancing and support Dressfest, a charitable gala where not only do you get to wear your wedding dress again, but where women unite with their families and friends to celebrate in style and give back to their community. This years’ Gala is in support of the London Regional Cancer Program & Patient Assisatance Program.
“Our idea came to life when the group of us decided that we spend way too much money on a wedding gown to only wear it once. We thought it would be fun to have a “girls’ night” in our wedding gowns, whether we were married to the dress or not. We could have a few drinks, do some dancing and have a whole lot of fun… and we did!…It is difficult to express the feeling we experienced when staring into a kitchen full of ten brides with smiles on their faces and a song in their hearts. This is what we wanted to share with others.”
The Dressfest committee’s mission is to raise money annually for a good cause that helps their community. This year, My Friend Huggles’ Lily doll and accessories will be present in their silent auction. Awesome idea Dressfest! We love it! For more information on Dressfest 2013 go to: http://dressfest.ca
