 Guests had the opportunity to laugh along with the Big Apple “Circus To Go” clowns and see performances by
John Fogarty Musical Entertainment
, Laughing Pizza, “Magic Al” Garber, the New York Lyric Circus, and Eventus. Interactive amusement included balloon art, juggling, hair-braiding by Pennie England and Jeannie Milone, face-art design by Donatella Gagliano, and cooking with Michael Salmon, chef from “The Next Food Network Star.” Marvel Comic Characters Wolverine and Spider Man and the
 501st Northeast Remnant characters also joined in the festivities. Geoffrey the Giraffe  made a special appearance,
and free rides on the 60-foot indoor Ferris wheel provided fun for all ages.

Proceeds from the 21st Annual Light Up a Life will benefit hospitalized children at the Komansky Center for Children’s Health at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, offering them emotional support, providing cheer through the Child Life Program and the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Program, and ensuring that underserved patients will receive the finest medical care, regardless of their ability to pay.

The event attracted hundreds of children, parents and grandparents who enjoyed rides on the 60-foot indoor Ferris wheel; exciting performances by musicians, clowns and characters; and hands-on, Halloween-themed activities. This spirited affair was hosted by Light Up a Life Honorary Chair Amanda Peet; Founding Chair Kathleen Burns; Event Chairs Rhonda Erb, Kathleen Kocatas, Alexandra Mandis, Alison Pappas, Kate Pickett and Catherine Shepard; and the Pediatric Support Committee. Others attendees were NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s President and CEO Dr. Herbert Pardes; and Dr. Gerald M. Loughlin, pediatrician-in-chief at the Komansky Center for Children’s Health at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
