Adventist Hinsdale Hospital’s ice cream social planned for Aug. 26
Hinsdale – The Hinsdale Hospital Medical Staff Auxiliary will host the 58th Annual Ice Cream Social from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26 in Burlington Park in downtown Hinsdale. Admission to this fun-filled event is free; ice cream, hot dogs, pizza, nachos and beverages will be available for a nominal fee. New this year is a rock-climbing wall and music by the band Bailout.
Proceeds will benefit the proposed cancer and outpatient center serving patients of Adventist Hinsdale and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospitals.
“Each year we hear stories about how this annual event tops off the summer’s activities,” said Dina Kritsas, medical staff auxiliary president. “It’s an important part of our mission to provide our community with family entertainment while educating them on important health issues.”
Returning family entertainment includes a cake walk, jump and bounce, and a TY Teddy Bear clinic sponsored by Adventist Hinsdale Hospital’s Koplin Emergency & Trauma Center. The first 500 children will take home a TY beanie baby with any pretend bumps or bruises cured.
The ice cream social will also host healthy living demonstrations at hospital booths throughout the park. The Hinsdale Fire and Police Departments will be on hand with equipment, fire trucks, child fingerprinting opportunities, and fatal vision goggles to demonstrate the dangers of impaired drivers. There will also be several children’s games and prizes. Some of the activities will be offered at a minimal fee.
“We see the annual ice cream social as another opportunity to share our vision with our community as we step into this exciting growth phase,” said Michael J. Goebel, chief executive officer of Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. “We are truly thankful that our dedicated Auxiliary team is able to put together such a family-focused event.”
