'Tommy Moose' Program Gets
Big-City Exposure With
Appearance On NBC5 Chicago

CHICAGO, May 26 -- This morning's pre-Today Show newscast on NBC5, WMAQ-TV in Chicago, featured an appearance by Moose International's life-size Tommy Moose, accompanied by Director of Fraternal Programs Shawn Baile. They were hosted by NBC5 morning anchor Rob Elgas.

The appearance during a segment at 5:45 a.m. CDT offered the opportunity for Baile to spread the word to 8 million Chicago-region residents about the Tommy Moose program, in which the men and women of 1,800 Moose Centers all across North America make cuddly plush Tommy Moose dolls available to police, fire and ambulance units.  The public-safety personnel then have Tommy handy in their vehicles to provide to small children in traumatic situations.

Baile also had the opportunity to mention the fact that 5,000 Moose men and women were in Chicago for the 2009 International Convention, and the Moose organization's support of Mooseheart Child City & School 40 miles west of Chicago.
