Hosted by Eric Ferguson, (co-host of the Eric & Kathy Morning Show on 101.9 “The Mix), the event benefits the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation (CAAF). Founded in 1993 by Joe Cristina (a Mattel, Inc. executive), the organization has raised over $35 million for children living with or affected by HIV and AIDS.
Dream Halloween called in some of Cartoonland’s heavy-hitters: Barbie and Geoffrey were seen mingling with Little Snow Whites, tiny mermaids and mini Supermen. Fun activities included cake decorating, candy-necklace making and a toy wonderland, where tots could cram gifts into oversized bags. “It is amazing to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary Dream Halloween Chicago and we are so fortunate to have the unwavering support of the Chicago community and our many sponsors allowing us to continue our important work supporting children affected by the epidemic,” said Joe Cristina. "The Children Affected by AIDS Foundation is the only organization solely devoted to providing social, educational, recreational and other critical support programs to vulnerable children impacted by HIV/AIDS in the U.S. and other countries. CAAF works with kids and their families to provide environments and fun things to do to lessen the stigmaand burden of HIV or AIDS.” The Chicago event raised over $500,000 for CAAF.
