Easter Party

The club does the bunny hop at Rusk Institute

Things were hopping, almost literally, at Project Help Us Give’s annual Easter/Passover party for the pediatric patients at NYU Langone Medical Center’s Rusk Institute on April 14. Square club members were joined at Rusk’s Horizon House room by charitable employees of Pricewaterhouse Coopers and the human resources team from recent Project H.U.G. honoree Maidenform Inc., who brought the children personalized, age-appropriate gift bags containing items ranging from dolls to games and arts and crafts. Project H.U.G. member Lizette Debaptiste made a memorable debut as this year’s Easter bunny, giving the kids Easter baskets and posing with them for pictures. DJ Mouse provided a “hip hop” soundtrack for the lively proceedings. After the Rusk team returned the children to the pediatric services ward the guests from the three organizations mingled during a mixer to celebrate their successful collaboration.
