Howl in Hudson

The Howl in Hudson Circle of Friends

Guests at Howl in Hudson, an exciting new Circle of Friends event, helped raise more than $70,000 for UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

A new Hudson Circle of Friends event drew 75 attendees and raised over $70,000 for University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. The inaugural event, Howl in Hudson, provided guests with an evening of cocktails, cuisine and crooning at Downtown 140, a cozy little wine bar in Hudson.

The Howl in Hudson Circle of Friends was founded by Jill Harrington and a committee of eight friends and supporters of Rainbow. The evening began with the Prelude – the portion of the night devoted to thanking event sponsors. Upon arrival at the red-carpet entrance, guests enjoyed an array of gourmet appetizers and fine wine. Next, guests attended the Chorus party for a sing-along evening with performer Mike Petrone. Mike led an interactive evening with guests at the event, playing familiar songs on the keyboard. Guests joined in with tambourines, shakers, dance moves, and even sang along on the microphone – which made for a howling good time.

Founded in 2002 by the Rainbow Babies & Children’s Foundation, Circle of Friends has a mission to provide the voice and structure for the alliance of those who voluntarily commit their time, talents and financial assistance in support of pediatric services for UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. The vision and hope of Circle of Friends is to develop, promote, support and enhance the excellence of all realms of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital pediatric services through fundraising and volunteerism. Circle of Friends’ members may also serve as ambassadors and valuable advocates for the health of children and their families.
