It’s the month of May and there’s so much to say!

Last month the LAAIA charity committee hopped on over to Holtz Children’s Hospital for it’s third annual Easter basket delivery. Over 60 handmade baskets were delivered by our very own LAAIA Bunny and Bunny helpers.

In other news, there’s still time to register for the 2nd Annual LAAIA/BLAAIA White Havana Nights Fundraiser benefiting Holtz Children’s Hospital and Lifenet4families! And if you need to brush up your Latin dance moves, we’ve got you covered. Salsa dance instructors will be joining us to give a lesson and do some dancing. A big thanks to our event Sponsor Ascendant Commercial Insurance Company.

Of course we saved the best news for last! After years in the making and lots of fundraising, we are overjoyed to announce the Grand Opening of the LAAIA Creative Arts Studio at Holtz Children’s Hospital. Patients of all ages will finally have the opportunity to make use of the space for therapy related activities as well as creative outlets such as making music, photography and art to help them cope during hospital stays. This is a monumental accomplishment for the LAAIA and it would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors and members who support our cause. Every dollar makes a difference in a patient’s life. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! An official ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on May 31st. Make sure you like the LAAIA Facebook page where we will be posting photos and live feed from the event!
