MEDIA ADVISORY: Governor Ducey To Make 3rd Annual Halloween Visit To Phoenix Children’s Hospital

October 30, 2018

PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey will visit Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) this Wednesday to spend time with children, families and staff as they participate in Halloween festivities. During his visit, Governor Ducey will meet with young patients in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders before holding a Halloween-themed book reading. Along with Nicole Bidwill of the Arizona Cardinals, Governor Ducey will be “reverse trick-or-treating” —  delivering goody bags and books generously donated by Scholastic and a local author — Shawn Kinsey  to children at PCH.

“It’s been a tremendous privilege to spend time at Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Halloween over the past few years,” said Governor Ducey. “When you have the opportunity to speak with the exceptional doctors and care teams at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, as well as the families they serve, it is easy to see why the hospital is continually ranked one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation. I’m inspired by the strength, courage and determination of every child and family receiving care through PCH and remain grateful for the dedicated support and life-changing services PCH provides.”

This year marks Governor Ducey’s third annual visit to Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Halloween to spend time with children and families.
