A Special Celebration for Some Special Kids

Posted December 5, 1998

— The holiday season just got a little brighter for some deserving young kids.

Embassy Suites-Crabtree Valley held its annual Christmas party Sunday for 120-children who have cancer. The kids are all being treated at Duke Medical Center and UNC Hospitals.

But today they enjoyed a special celebration that included a visit with Santa Claus.

"We just want to have a lot of fun and have Christmas crafts and something that will make it a memorable occasion for them," said Pam Rogers, general manager for Embassy Suites.

This is the tenth year the hotel has hosted the party for the kids.
