BALTIMORE (WMAR) — About 300 critically ill children and their families gathered at the Maryland Science Center on Saturday for an annual holiday party for the Casey Cares Foundation.

The children, who normally go through the daily rigor of doctor and hospital visits had the chance to meet Santa, listen to music, and have breakfast with their peers all while enjoying different Science Center exhibits.

“For one morning, the critically ill children in our programs can put aside their doctor visits and hospital visits and enjoy being a kid and explore all the great exhibits at the Maryland Science Center," said Casey Cares founder and executive director Casey Baynes.

The Casey Cares Foundation was founded in 2000, and is a non-profit organization that provides lasting memories for families with critically ill children by organizing events in eight states and Washington, D.C.
