Exhibit 4 Smiles delivers holiday gifts to Children’s Hospital University of Illinois
The holidays arrive early for chronically ill children at Children’s Hospital University of Illinois when Exhibit 4 Smiles volunteers deliver hand-selected gifts to more than 100 kids.
Exhibit 4 Smiles is a charity for children with life-threatening diseases. Caring people from the exhibit industry partner with ill children who each receive a specific gift based on their age, gender and interests.
Costas Varkarotas founded the program. Varkarotas, whose son Christopher has faced a life-threatening illness, began reaching out to his colleagues in the exhibit industry to hold a toy drive. Since then, the organization has partnered with the Exhibit Designers & Producers Association Foundation to bring hundreds of gifts to children in various cities.
