“Touch, Smell and Hear” Event Brings the Holidays to Children with Physical and Mental Challenges

HOUSTON, TX (Nov. 15, 2017)—More than 400 children with various physical and mental challenges will experience the joys of the holiday season when they attend the 44th annual “Touch, Smell and Hear” event 9 to 11:30 a.m. Dec. 4 at the John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science (The Health Museum).

The annual event, hosted by the Harris County Medical Society Alliance, will include two 12-foot Christmas trees donated by Thompson Nursery in Magnolia, Texas and decorated with special ornaments that delight the senses. The ornaments include bubble-blowing machines, wind chimes, scented pine cones, as well as ornaments with feathers, furs and more.  Additionally, the children will be treated to carols sung by the Christmas Belles throughout the morning, along with a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

The Harris County Medical Society Alliance was established in 1919 for the spouses of the Harris County Medical Society’s members. The Alliance’s mission is to engage in educational and philanthropic activities while fostering fellowship.
