SunriseLive! is back for another year as a virtual event hosted by Andy Cohen, honoring ANSTitle’s own Danielle and Michael Ramin. Join us on Thursday, June 3, 2021 to support children with cancer. This entertaining evening will include performances from fantastic talent, inspiring stories from Sunrise families, an exciting silent auction, and more.
SunriseLIVE! is a virtual event that is raising funds to support Sunrise Day Camps in Long Island and Pearl River. These special camps bring back the magic of summer for children with cancer and their siblings throughout our region. Before COVID-19, Sunrise Association was providing 7,000+ children with the world’s only free summer day camps, year-round recreational programs, and programs designed to care for children while they are being treated inside 21 of their affiliated pediatric oncology hospitals. Sunrise programs looked different this past year, but they continued to fulfill their mission of bringing joy back to children with cancer through virtual camp, activity packets and arts and crafts projects delivered to hospitals, resources for support, food when needed, and so much more. A Medical Task Force is working hard on creating criteria based on information shared by American Camping Association, the CDC and the NYS Board of Health for a safe reopening of 2021 camp. Sunrise also plans to simultaneously continue to offer a virtual option for those who are too sick to attend. These children need our help, especially now. Our new reality – fear of germs, wearing masks, isolation – isn’t new to children with cancer. These children were isolated long before COVID-19, and many will remain isolated when our world goes back to normal.
