West U’s “Vivacious” Vita Montalbano enjoyed making a child and his parent’s stay at Texas Children’s Hospital brighter as a Radio Lollipop volunteer. Radio Lollipop broadcasts to patient rooms on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday evenings with children phoning in song requests, telling jokes, and hearing their voices on the radio. Play and help kids with craft activities—and make a real difference for children whose days are filled with doctors and procedures. If you have what it takes to be one of the few, the proud, the silly, call 832-824-2257. No radio experience is necessary.

Monies raised surpassed those in previous years, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Houston (www.ucphouston.org).
The Buzz Magazines, Ben & Jerry’s, and The Junior League scooped up ice cream and smiles for children staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Houston for an end of summer celebration. Creativity ran wild as each child concocted their own ice cream sundae.
