Annually on Halloween, ECBC joins in with CHOC’s children’s trick-or-treating event by hosting a “book booth” alongside the many other booths that give away candy, small toys, and other treats. BOO-KS for Treats includes:
- about 400 new books for patients of all ages.
- All high-quality Halloween-themed books
- patients and siblings dressed up and trick-or-treating for books!
This is a special event for ECBC co-founder Ethan, who was diagnosed with Leukemia on October 28th (2014) and began his chemotherapy on October 31, while still getting to dress up and trick-or-treat in the hospital. In 2014 there were no books at this event, so Ethan is proud to be able to provide books on Halloween as part of ECBC’s regular programming.
