BOISE-- Volunteers delivered "Miracle Bears" to young patients at St. Luke's Children's Hospital Thursday. With the delivery, came many smiles from the children at the hospital.
The Miracle Bears were all dressed up for the occasion. All of them wore custom-made outfits to fit the theme of this year's St. Luke's annual fundraiser called Kid for a Night.. The theme was Peter Pan and Neverland. To fit this theme, the bears wore the latest fashions in pirate costumes, fairy outfits and more.
The bears were made to be purchased at the fundraiser and 72 were donated back to the hospital to pass out to patients.
The Kid for a Night Committee Chair, Rachel Pulliam says that giving out bears isn't just special for the children, but special for everyone who takes part in the process.
Pulliam, said " I think it means the world. I mean, I think everybody is touched by a child that has either been here or has a family member or a friend that has had a child with a serious illness or has had an event that has happened. So it means the world to everybody here."
