Art can produce wondrous effects. Medicine can produce wonders. At Primitive, we recognize this as simple truth, especially when it comes to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. When the hospital opens in 2012, it will truly be a “state-of-the-arts” facility, incorporating the most advanced research in terms of the environments within the hospital and the medicine being practiced. The Children’s story is being written right now. It tells of a forward thinking, 125 year old organization getting ready for the next 125 years. It highlights a place where medicine is practiced in the most scientific, progressive and compassionate ways in a facility designed to heal, a facility where a million people per year are expected to pass through the doors. It speaks to progress on every front. Chicago can be proud of Children’s, but the hospital could not be realized without the support of people like you. Your participation in the first Auction for the Creative Arts will help ensure smiles on the faces of countless kids and their parents when they discover there is no need to be fearful, because healing can be inspirational, enriching, and educational in every way imaginable. Thank you for your participation.

Dear Friend, Welcome and thank you for joining us for the inaugural “Auction for the Creative Arts” hosted by Primitive. Children’s Memorial Hospital has taken a ground-breaking approach to enhancing the healing environment in our new state of the art facility, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Twenty-three of Chicago’s leading civic and cultural organizations are partnering with Children’s, using their talents to create a calming atmosphere that will also inspire patients and families to explore and discover what makes Chicago unique. A percentage of your purchases through tonight’s “Auction for the Creative Arts” will benefit the Creative Arts Program at Lurie Children’s, enabling the hospital to offer live performances, maintain and refresh art exhibits, and provide educational activities for children and families in collaboration with our Community Partners. We are most grateful for your support of this effort. Lurie Children’s opens on June 9, 2012. We would be delighted to arrange a behind-the-scenes hard hat tour of Lurie Children’s for you. If you would like to join us for this unique and interesting opportunity, we will find a time that is convenient for you in the coming weeks. Contact Tom Flynn at 773.880.8175 or tflynn@childrensmemorial.org to schedule a tour. On behalf of the Children’s Memorial Hospital’s Creative Arts Advisory Council and Primitive, thanks again for your interest in tonight’s program and your support of the Creative Arts Program at Lurie Children’s.
