Our Imagine LA Family had an exciting summer kickoff event at the LA Zoo, thanks to our friends at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Imagine LA Families and their mentors were able to spend a special day enjoying such activities as face painting, an artist drawing caricatures, a live DJ, and learning about the many animals living in the zoo.
As part of their volunteer activity, Cedars-Sinai spent the morning preparing backpacks filled with back to school items, water bottles, and other necessities. Each Imagine LA Family received one of these backpacks, which included items for each their children. Thanks to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center families were also treated to a catered lunch.
"Cedars-Sinai Medical Group is thrilled to have Imagine LA as our partner. The staff were so excited to create the backpacks for the Imagine LA families and to meet the families and share a day at the Zoo. The kids seemed to love the face painting and petting the lizards," said Chief Operating Officer, Jill Martin, also an Imagine LA board member.
