Have you seen the “Image a World Without Childhood Cancer” mural at Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah, GA? Local artists Morgan Webb and Alyson Harris donated their time to paint the beautiful mural in honor of CURE Childhood Cancer in the kids soft play area. In September, Oglethorpe Mall hosted a September Kickoff to showcase the masterpiece and #GoGold4CURE. This month, Oglethorpe Mall will have a ceremony to dedicate the area to CURE and raise more awareness of childhood cancer.
In recognition of the significant impact that CURE Childhood Cancer has on the community, Oglethorpe Mall will dedicate its new Tot Lot to CURE on January 31, 2014 at 10 a.m. The dedication ceremony will include a $1,000 donation to CURE from Oglethorpe Mall. Art by Alyson will provide free face painting to guests from 10 a.m. until noon. For a donation to CURE, guests may purchase a personalized vinyl decal to be placed on the exterior wall of the Tot Lot during the month of February.
“Oglethorpe Mall is thrilled to partner with CURE Childhood Cancer,” said Paul Baker, General Manager of Oglethorpe Mall. “From hosting the annual CURE’s Kids Conquer Cancer One Day at a Time kickoff event, to donating all coins collected in our fountain in JC Penney court to CURE, we’re proud of our partnership and look forward to continuing to raise awareness and funds in aid of this worthy cause.”
The Tot Lot is a new, educationally-inspired, children’s soft play park filled with play elements for climbing, jumping and pretending. It includes a Kids Clubhouse, ABC slide, two super soft foam clusters, a coil crawl-through, a theatre section featuring a flat screen television, wall-mounted interactive play activities and ribbons of letters, numbers and shapes suspended overhead at varying heights.
We hope you will join the dedication ceremony and invite your children and friends to enjoy playtime at the Tot Lot. Follow our gracious supporter, Oglethorpe Mall, on Facebook for more updates and news.
