Paint the Caps for Kids with Cancer “Making Kids Smile One Cap at a Time”

The first national “Paint the Caps” school event was held at The Benjamin School’s 50th Anniversary Kickoff Celebration on October 3, 2010 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. “Paint the Caps” is an organization that provides pediatric cancer patients with personalized, hand-decorated baseball caps. The purpose of “Paint the Caps” is to brighten the lives of cancer patients by providing them with a sense of love and support during these difficult times in their lives.

This event was organized by one of “Paint the Caps” founders, Hayley Miller, and representatives of the Benjamin School, student, Jamie Corey and visual arts teacher, Mrs. Monica Sweeney, along with the Benjamin School’s National Art Honor Society students. For a donation, Students, parents and alumni had an opportunity to work hand and hand with the art students to create original designed hats. The hats will be donated to P.O.S.T., Pediatric Oncology Support Team, and distributed to local children’s hospitals. The proceeds from the donations to participate in the event will benefit The Benjamin School Memorial Fund. If you are interested in hosting an event, please feel free to contact for more information.
