RHS hosted another fun and love-filled day at The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. Our annual event celebrates miraculous RHS families, regardless of how they are created. We invited a record number 623 families and, despite the rainy, cold weather, we had 486 guests. While O’Ryan the O’Mazing kept the guests of honor entertained with his juggling, plate spinning and magic, parents and RHS staff had the opportunity to reconnect and share stories of the journey to becoming a family. We’ve noticed an increase in the number of older children attending! Returning this year was our popular kids coloring contest. Congratulations to our four winners: Fiona, age 14 months, Blake, age 5, Dominic, age 6 and Nicole, age 12. They received a special treat in honor of their artistic efforts!
We want YOU at the zoo! The RHS staff looks forward to this event every year and we would love to ensure that all of our past patients receive an invitation. Please link to our blog to register with us and ensure your invitation arrives. This blog also provides information about how to update your contact information and how to have your child’s first name and date of birth added to a leaf for one of our trees. There is also an opportunity to send us pictures via upload (which we love second best to seeing you at the zoo!).
Fingers crossed for a warm and sunny day next year. We’ll see you there!
