 If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Sandy Romano's Weekly "Splash"

hand painting

Thanks to an initial grant from the Thomas & Jeanne Elmezzi Foundation and the ongoing support of the Laurence W. Levine Foundation, Splashes of Hope volunteer artist Sandy Romano provides hand-painting for the patients and their siblings at the Stony Brook Pediatric Oncology clinic each week. The artwork provides therapeutic distraction while receiving intravenous medication or while waiting to be seen by a doctor.  Each week, Sandy paints whatever a child might wish for, and brings a smile to each little face.

This past month, volunteers Liz Macchio and Sandy Romano headed to Hempstead, where the Hispanic Counseling Center was splashed with multiple murals. The staff was thrilled with the results; we are so lucky to have these incredible volunteers!

 "The hallways of our facility now assist us in brightening the lives of those that struggle with depression when they come in for therapy sessions. Many of our clients have made such positive comments regarding the artwork already! Your organization is wonderful and your artists are rich in talent. What a wonderful gift you offer to those that are less fortunate and find it a struggle to find cheerfulness in each day."

Splash Clubs!
Our Splash Clubs in the local schools have been hard at work this season! With their help, gift bags at the Annual Gala & Art Auction were custom-designed by the students of the Brentwood School District. Meanwhile, our friends at Cold Spring Harbor High School have designed layouts for our upcoming project at the Carilion Memorial Roanoke Hospital! Thanks for all of your dedication, Splash Clubs!
