Sunday, June 1st, was the annual All Children’s Hospital 2014 Telethon held at the Educational Center on the sprawling All Children’s Hospital campus. Hosted by the team at WFLA News Channel 8, the event took place from 630am -7pm. The telethon featured heart warming stories about past and present patients at All Children’s Hospital along with check presentations from Grand Donors. Javic Homes was able to be a Grand Donor at this year’s event thanks to the success of our 2014 Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase Home.
Throughout the planning and execution of the Showcase Home, it was easy to get lost in the selections process or event planning. However, we were always able to ground ourselves by remembering that this event is for our non-profit partners. This fact was reiterated while waiting in the Educational Center at All Children’s to present the Javic Homes check.
While waiting, Jack, the 3 year old poster child for the 2014 Telethon seen in the image above, walked in. He was joyful, inquisitive, and happy to see everyone. Jack is quite the popular boy! Many All Children’s staffers rushed over to say hello and play with him before his segment aired. The genuine happiness that filled the room was evident, and knowing that Javic Homes is helping All Children’s put such big smiles on the faces of children facing seemingly insurmountable struggles is life changing.
After having worked with many members of the All Children’s family and meeting some of the children that have called All Children’s home, we could not be happier to have presented our donation to this amazing organization!
