Englewood Cliffs, NJ (PRWEB) November 10, 2007 - Loew-
Cornell's The World of Eric Carle® Art Activity Kits (http://www.loew-cornell.com) for children were a featured item in the coveted celebrity gift bags at the 9th Annual Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's Celebrity Golf Classic. The new art activity kits are a hands-on way for parents and children to spend time together, being creative and having fun.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's 9th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic was held at the Lakeside Golf Club on Monday, October 1, 2007. The event raised a record-breaking $800,000 to support the Foundation's lifesaving programs for children and families. James Caan and Joe Pesci served as co-hosts, and Sharon Stone acted as the live auctioneer for the event. Other celebrity participants included Richard Kind, Sylvester Stallone, Billy Crystal, Chris O'Donnell, Sugar Ray Leonard, Kevin Nealon and Don Johnson, among many others.
"The work of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is extremely important and we are proud to have been a part of this successful event," said Loew-Cornell Brand Manager Jennifer O'Leary. "The foundation continues to make a meaningful impact on the lives of countless children, a core value that Loew-Cornell and The World Eric Carle share, and the reason why we were eager to become involved."
Working from Eric Carle's philosophy and innate understanding of children and their needs, Loew-Cornell has designed a variety of six Eric Carle Art Activity Kits, each with its own unique art supplies and learning theme. Recommended for ages 3 and up, each kit has a themed activity book illustrated with Carle's beloved characters and art from books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? and The Grouchy Ladybug.
