Good Knight Author Presented Both Story and Donation to Children’s Specialized Hospital Network
Mountainside, NJ – On March 16, 2015, author Tom Geden performed his book The Adventure of Sir Good Knight for the children, guests and staff at Children’s Specialized Hospital in NJ. After the performance he formally announced he was donating 10% of all earnings from his book to the recreation department at the facility. According to Kimberly A. Armenti, the facility’s Director of Development, this donation is the first of its kind in the history of Children’s Specialized. After his reading Tom interacted with the kids, using the foam swords he brought as story props, and posed with them if they desired photos. He also presented a gift copy of his book for children to read at the facility, donated one to the main library at the front of the hospital, and greeted amused people at the door in his knight costume. As a departing gift, he presented the kids in the waiting room with swords made out of Twizzler candies.
Tom is also available in northeast New Jersey to perform as a knight at birthday parties.
