Nicklaus Children’s Hospital (NCH) Associate Administrator Don Chester was happy to accept a hard-earned $87 donation from nine-year old Nicole Knifley and 10-year old Kayla Casey.  

The two Hobe Sound residents walked neighborhood dogs and held lemonade stands to raise funds in honor of a chronically-ill friend. When the girls came to NCH, administrators took them and their mothers through the hospital to show how their money would be used.  Following the tour, the girls – students at SeaWind Elementary School — made a commitment to raise additional funds for the hospital as well as assist the NCH Child Life Institute with play therapy craft sessions.
