This picture represents a relationship we established with the Oakland Ice Arena and a young ice skating team of performers. The collaboration sent patients and their families to Holiday "Magic" On Ice performances, followed by a gift giving session that included fun & educational toys provided by LeapFrog International and Games Unlimited who sponsored this experience via their donated gifts.
