SPIRIT 105.9 Brings Holiday Cheer to Dell Children’s Hospital

SPIRIT 105.9 (KFMK Austin, TX) partnered with local musical artists, Blaise Raccuglia and Payton Keller, to share the holiday spirit with the numerous children and families residing at Dell Children’s Hospital. Dell Children’s Hospital is the only dedicated, freestanding pediatric facility in the region and numerous families will spend a majority of their holiday season within its’ walls. Spirit 105.9 wanted to find a way to bring a little piece of home to each family – whether they would be visiting for the day, the month or even longer.

On the warm Monday morning of December 9th, various members of the Spirit 105.9 team joined by Dell Children’s music therapist, Nicole Valerioti, handed out holiday cheer with new Christmas CD’s for guests and singing along to new and old favorites. Raccuglia and Keller performed for visitors and staff alike, while singing in the hospital lobby and waiting rooms, and roaming to individual rooms as the morning continued.

Loving others in a time of need; bringing joy when some might be lost. This is the SPIRIT of Christmas.

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
