August 1998 - Our very first event.  Where the password to allow entrance into the event was "I'm A Kool Kid"

Charlotte, North Carolina

The "Kaps for Kool Kids" summer pool party for pediatric oncology patients and their families was so much fun.  A variety of "kool kaps" were given to the children and then autographed by the local celebrities.

Christmas "Kaps For Kool Kid" sponsored by Avon to benefit the Children's Hospital of Birmingham was an event like no other.  Pediatric patients and their families were greeted by Santa where they enjoyed lots of delicious food, wonderful give-a-ways and even the chance to meet local celebrities.
