Mayor Domenic J. Sarno has joined with Walgreens in recognition of National Red Nose Day in the City of Springfield. Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to helping children and having fun. Proceeds benefit children and young people in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world.
Mayor Sarno and City Hall employees wore their red noses today, May 17, 2016 at 10:45 AM on the front steps of Springfield City Hall. Red Nose Day is a special day for Americans to come together to have fun and make a difference for kids.
Red Nose Day returns this year to the U.S. on Thursday May 26, 2016. The day's events will culminate in a two-hour live primetime TV special on NBC, featuring the biggest stars across comedy, music, TV and film. Funds raised go to the Red Nose Day Fund which distributes the money through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated. Red Nose Day USA is run by Comic Relief Inc. in the U.S. and Comic Relief UK are independent sister organizations that are joined by their shared vision of a just world, free from poverty and the mission to drive positive change through the power of entertainment.
