“DISNEY ON ICE: TOY STORY 3” CHARACTERS TO VISIT PATIENTS AT METHODIST CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL ON THURSDAY, APRIL 21
Characters Woody, Buzz and Jessie will bring the fun and excitement of “Disney on Ice: Toy Story 3” to patients at Methodist Children’s Hospital on Thursday, April 21 from 1 to 1:30 p.m. They will hand out special goodies to the patients. Performances continue at the Alamodome through Sunday.
Visits of this nature are wonderful opportunities to lift the spirits of children who are hospitalized and unable to leave the hospital to experience special events that are here for a limited time. It also helps the children create a “fun” memory while in the hospital and helps to take their minds off their illness or injury.
Though the visit is short, the interaction between the children and these fun characters should provide good visuals. All media must be escorted, so please let us know in advance if you would like to cover the visit by contacting JoAnn King at 575-0171 or 325-3294. Methodist Children’s Hospital is located at 7700 Floyd Curl Drive. JoAnn can also assist in arranging for free valet parking for media guests.
