RiverThing Celebrates Half-Christmas with the kids at Le Bonhuer Children's Hospital

MEMPHIS, Tenn – RiverThing threw on his Hawaiian Shirt and did the luau with kids at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital Monday afternoon. As part of the Le Bonheur "Half Christmas" celebration, RiverThing was a part of the large event which merged Hawaiian and traditional Christmas themes. A movie played down the hall while some kids turned paper plates into wreaths and created their own "Half Christmas" cards. 

Along with RiverThing, Santa Claus stopped by to visit the kids during his offseason, and the pair attempted to conduct an orchestra of ukeleles and kazoos. 

RiverThing has been increasingly busy this summer as part of the RiverKings ReachOut program, with another Sticks are for Kids stop scheduled for Tuesday at Camp Bold in Olive Branch. The RiverKings are committed to helping local charities, church groups, and community programs through their RiverKings ReachOut program. To schedule a mascot appearance for your next event, Sticks are for Kids day for your youth group, or any community appearance which may help your program gain exposure, give a call to Community Development Coordinator TJ Chillot at 662-253-0177.
