First Annual Allie's Angels Day To Bring Smiles To Seriously Ill Children Date:  September 12, 2002
Contact:  Steve or Sandy Cibulas
Phone:  (248) 788-5719

The first annual Allie's Angels Day will take place Sunday, September 22, 2002 from 1:00-4:00pm at Boulan Park, 3671 Crooks Road, Troy Michigan. (300 children and their families have been invited to attend this event)

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.

Allie's Angels Day is set up to create Allie's Angels Bags for seriously ill children throughout Michigan. Children attending Allie's Angels Day will choose fun and useful items to place in Allie's Angels Bags. The bags are bright and colorful and will be filled with items specially chosen for children who are suffering life threatening illnesses. Most of the items have been donated by local and national retailers, and include "fairy spray" to chase the scary feelings away, books, games and toys as well as many other goodies. Allie's Angels Volunteers will distribute the bags throughout the year to children's hospitals in 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. 

"When we lost Allie a year ago, we truly didn't know how to make sense of this tragedy and find a meaningful way to go on." Said Steve and Sandy Cibulas, Allie's parents. "But our family and friends helped us to build this wonderful tribute to our daughter, one that brings children and families together to help others facing the extremely difficult circumstances that we faced." 

Children attending Allie's Angels Day will go through "Angel Stations" set up to help them create goodie bags made with love for children their own age. They will also create their own craft and a personal letter of encouragement to insert in the bags. Games and activities are scheduled throughout the day.
