Arrow Exterminators Celebrates 18th Year Sponsoring Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Holiday Parade
Thousands of Spectators Turn out to Kick off the Holiday Season in Downtown Atlanta
For 18 years, Arrow team members and their families have been entertaining spectators in downtown Atlanta by sponsoring and participating in the annual Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta® (CHOA) Holiday Parade. This year over 200 team members braved the cold to walk in the parade and expertly maneuvered giant helium-filled balloons, the Three Blind Mice, down the one mile route.
The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta® holiday parade, the largest parade in the southeast, kicks off the holiday season with thousands of people lining the streets of Midtown to watch the floats, bands, performers, and even an appearance from Santa Claus. All of the proceeds from the parade benefit the Friends Funding Goals for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta which supports the lifesaving research and treatments provided by CHOA.
“The parade has become an annual holiday tradition for many of our team members, some of whose own lives have been touched by the valuable services provided by Children’s,” commented Emily Thomas Kendrick, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are so thankful for the opportunity to be affiliated with such a worthwhile event that not only provides the community with a memorable holiday experience but also raises funds to support the healthcare needs of children in our community,” she added.
