Contact:  Steve or Sandy Cibulas
Phone:  (248) 788-5719

The first annual Allie's Angels Day was a huge success with over 500 people attending, including 265 children creating Allie’s Angels Gift Bags to bring to children’s hospitals across Michigan. Allie’s Angels Day took place Sunday, September 22, 2002 from 1:00-4:00pm at Boulan Park, 3671 Crooks Road, Troy Michigan.

"It really was amazing to see so many children joining together to help other children who are suffering" said Steve and Sandy Cibulas, Allie's parents. "It was a wonderful and inspiring day, a true reflection of the fun and love that Allie brought daily to our lives. We now have 300 Allie’s Angel Bags to deliver to children in hospitals across Michigan."

Allie's Angels was created in memory and in celebration of the life of Allie Cibulas, who was diagnosed at the age of 4 1/2 with an inoperable brain tumor. Allie passed away in September, 2001. Children of families who knew Allie and were touched by the Cibulas family were invited to the first annual Allie’s Angels Day.

Children attending Allie's Angels Day went through "Angel Stations" set up to help them create large gift bags made with love for children their own age. They also created their own craft and a personal letter of encouragement to insert in the bags. The bags were filled with items both useful and enjoyable for children facing long hospital stays.

Allie's Angels is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing smiles to children with life threatening illnesses, providing love and assistance to their families, and finding a cure for pediatric brain cancer. Find out more about Allie's Angels at www.alliesangels.org.
