But this year’s event is a more personal one for Crown’s Artistic Director Ron Morehead.
“In 2008, my youngest daughter was born in the NICU with a potentially fatal condition. The doctors and nurses not only saved her life, but they took such good care of us. They put us at ease and kept us involved in every step of our daughter’s recovery. They save lives with their talents. We want to help them with ours.”
