giving to golisanoAll week, 13WHAM anchor Jennifer Johnson has shared stories of generous donors who have committed to naming a space in our new Golisano Children's Hospital building. Packaged as a "Giving to Golisano" series, the incredibly inspiring stories wouldn't be possible without the great support from the donors' friends, family, and our community. 

Catch up on this week's stories: 

Monday - B&L Wholesale Supply, Inc. names the future PET-MRI Suite

Tuesday - Team Ali-Gaiters name a private patient room

Wednesday - Lauren's Legacy leaves its mark with the west-side healing garden

Thursday - Walmart and Sam's Club name the pediatric lobby

GraceFriday (tomorrow) will be a special live telethon event dedicated to the story of 2012 Miracle Kid Amazing Grace Esposito and how her mom Jennifer Johnson, her dad Vincent Esposito, and her 13WHAM family have committed $350,000 to naming the east-side healing garden, "Grace's Garden," in her memory.

Tune in to 13WHAM from 5 to 9 a.m. (7 to 9 on FOX Rochester), noon to 12:30 p.m., and 5 to 6:30 p.m. to hear how you can help honor Grace's memory by adding your name or business' name to the focal points of the garden - a leaf on the Tree of Love or a butterfly, one of Grace's favorites. 

Phones will be open starting at 6 a.m. Call (585) 241-KIDS(5437) to purchase an item in the garden or to make a general donation.
