Shriners throw party for patients

December 11, 2004

Lee County- The Albany Shrine Club throws a Christmas party every year for dozens of children who are burn patients or have orthopedic ailments.

In addition to face painting and pony rides, the children received some early gifts from Santa during Saturday's Christmas party.

"I get to be around my friends and I get to see everybody again," says 13 year old Donnie Blakey who is one of the patients.

Nationwide Shriners spend $610 million dollars a year on medical care for children.
