Miracle Bash and Swim for Melissa benefit Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children’s Regional Neonatal ICU through the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund. Almost every piece of equipment in the unit – which serves more than 1,000 newborns annually – has been provided thanks to generous event sponsors and donors to Melissa’s Fund.
Miracle Bash features a buffet dinner and spectacular silent auction. The next morning, children ages four to 14 swim laps for the NICU babies and enjoy lots of activities during Swim for Melissa at Hampton Cove Pool.
MIRACLE BASH ATTENDEES
Record net proceeds helped expand the Regional Neonatal ICU, adding 10 new patient bed areas to serve more sick and premature babies from across North Alabama.
“A life saved is a powerful thing. The Huntsville Hospital NICU saved our Charlie before he could even comprehend what his life might become. As parents, we’re reminded of that all the time. Charlie lost his first tooth last week – without the NICU we wouldn’t have gotten a visit from the Tooth Fairy. He started kindergarten this year – without the NICU we wouldn’t have had a first day of school. And without the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund, the Huntsville Hospital NICU doctors wouldn’t have much of the equipment and resources they use to save brand new lives every day.”
