ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR OF TOY DELIVERY!
2011 proved to be nothing short of AWESOME! The genorosity of our friends, families and neighbors brought smiles to so many children this holiday season. We were able to deliver toys to the following:
- UIC Pediatric Hospital
- University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital
- Advocate Hope Children'a Hospital
- Ronald McDonald House
- St. James in Chicago Heights
- Ingalls in Harvey, IL
- St. Katherine in East Chicago, IN
- Community in Munster, IN
- St. Mary's of Hobart, IN
- St. Anthony in Crown Point, IN
- St. Margaret Mercy in Dyer, IN
The toys were delivered in honor 4 very special children. Our friends, Rocco and Luke, who beat the odds of cancer and Chris who recovered from his injuries sustained by a fire.
The fourth child is Paige Keursten. When Paige passed away, her organs were donated. As painful as that was for her family, they have been comforted knowing that her memory lives on and on. So this year, her sisters, Lexi and Brooke, accompanied Theresa to Hope Hospital to distribute toys in honor of Paige. Channel 7 News joined them at Hope for an interview about their sister and the toy delivery. It was a memorable occassion in honor of a remarkable girl.
We will continue to have events to raise funds for our foundation, but appreciate that some are very busy and cannot attend such events. That's why we hope this site will give you an opportunity to donate to these special children.
The Flamini Foundation is a non-profit organization.
Our proceeds are allocated to provide
children and their families with gifts at the Holiday Season.
We hope to see you again!

There's much more to come!
