Having fun at the play ball

Whether it was estimating the number of candies in a jar, striking a pose in the photo booth, or watching a video about how Erikson can make you an early childhood ninja, Erikson’s friends, alumni, and students certainly brought a playful spirit to Hilton’s elegant flagship hotel on the evening of May 11, 2012.

The event was a smashing success, raising more than $630,000 for Erikson’s work with children and families. The occasion was also an opportunity to honor Joseph A. Gregoire, regional president of PNC Bank’s Illinois banking, with the Spirit of Erikson Institute Award.

Photo Booth

Some guests chose to pose in costumes and props from the playroom dress-up box. Others just wore a huge grin. But all of them captured the event’s youthful theme.
