For over a decade Arrow Exterminators' employees have been amusing spectators on Peachtree Street by sponsoring and participating in the annual Children's Healthcare of Atlanta® (CHOA) Holiday Parade. This was Arrow's 12th year sponsoring this event and although the weather was wet and cold, it did not dampen the spirits of Arrow's enthusiastic volunteers who expertly maneuvered a two story festive "mouse" balloon down the three mile route.

The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta® holiday parade, the largest parade in the southeast, is an event to raise money for Children's pediatric hospitals Scottish Rite, Egleston and Hughes Spalding. The proceeds from this year's event will exceed $150,000. Ranked consistently as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country by Parents® magazine and U.S. News & World Report, CHOA enhances the lives of children through excellence in patient care, research and education.

"The parade has become an annual holiday tradition for our employees, some of whose own lives have been touched by the valuable services provided by Children's," commented Joe Thomas, CEO of Arrow Exterminators. "We are very fortunate to have this outstanding care available in our own back yard and Arrow is thrilled to be affiliated with this worthwhile event," he added.
