June 9, 2018: Memorial Lantern Release

The date, place, and time have been set for our memorial lantern release this year. We are inviting all families who have received/requested a hospital gown from our organization, whose child has passed away to attend this event. This year we are releasing 117 lanterns, each one with a child's name, date of birth, date of passing, and diagnosis included on them. Photographs of all the lanterns created so far are located on our Facebook page. If you do not see your child's lantern, please e-mail me (jessica@graciesgowns.org) and I will make sure they are included in this year's release.

Lantern Release Address: 
14682 Star View Lane
Unionville, VA 22567-3070
Time:
7:00p-10:30p
(lanterns will start being released around 8:15p)

Gown Request Updates

This year, we have decreased our average wait time down from 311 days to merely 16 days. Since the launching of our new request form and the fee for service format, the longest wait for a gown request in 2018 has been 54 days. Over 300 gown requests have been mailed to children this year, with many more to come!
We have been experimenting with new gown designs as well, in addition, to new sewing techniques, better quality embroidery designs and supplies, and fulfilling the promises we made by always striving towards improvement. This year has had its challenges, but not without some pretty amazing blessings too.
