12-21-2010 (Dayton, OH) -

Struggling to find a gift last minute for a friend or loved one who has it all this holiday season? Does your daughter go gaga for Lady Gaga? Maybe your significant other makes sure the DVR is set every week to catch a certain favorite reality dance competition?  If so, The Women’s Board of The Children’s Medical Center has the gifts you need this holiday season.

Treat your loved one to the good life walking the red carpet at the GRAMMYs and rub elbows with all of the celebrities at the official after party. Maybe he or she would rather dance their way to Hollywood to attend a live taping of Dancing with the Stars and meet the cast. Both of these items are available on the official CHA-CHA event website.

GRAMMY package includes:

  • 2 floor seats to GRAMMYs to be held on February 13, 2011
  • Red carpet walk with celebrities
  • 2 tickets to the official Grammy after party

Dancing with the Stars package includes:

  • 2 tickets to a live show at CBS Studios in Los Angeles (next season begins spring of 2011)
  • Meet the cast

The Women’s Board holds CHA-CHA, a fundraiser with a specific goal, every other May. CHA-CHA 2011 proceeds will help fund the purchase of Giraffe® beds for Dayton Children’s Regional Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Currently the NICU is in need of 16 beds that cost $45,000 each.

Why Giraffe® beds?

A Giraffe® bed is not just a bed; it is a specially designed, high-tech warming isolette for critically ill newborns. The NICU staff refers to the cutting edge technology as a “baby Susan” because they can move the bed around and allow the baby to stay in the same bed before, during and after procedures. This full-featured neonatal care station has a rotating, extra large mattress (for larger babies or even twins), an x-ray cassette tray, internal bed tilt and an integrated in-bed scale. A warming drawer keeps diapers and blankets warm, the rail system provides mounting for IV poles, pumps, shelves and other accessories, and the elevating base accommodates taller caregivers or special procedures.

About the Women’s Board

The 36-member Women’s Board is rich in tradition and history. Under the direction of the first Women’s Board President, Ruth C. Mead, the first CHA-CHA was held in 1967. Throughout the years, more than $2 million has been raised, enabling Dayton Children’s to renovate and expand hospital facilities, including the newborn intensive care unit, the Wallace Critical Care Complex and the new Soin Pediatric Trauma and Emergency Center.
