The Annual Children's Hospital Foundation Ball

Date:
Friday, November 2, 2018 at 7pm
Time:
Location:
The Country Club of Virginia

The 55th Annual Children’s Hospital Foundation Ball will take place on the evening of Friday, November 2, 2018. This year’s theme, “Written in the Stars,” will bring to life the classic works of well-loved authors with elegant and fantastical floor-to-ceiling decorations and tablescapes. The black tie evening begins with cocktails, followed by a seated dinner and dancing.

The Annual Ball is organized by the Junior Board of Children's Hospital Foundation, a volunteer auxiliary board comprised of 50 women. The highlight of the Junior Board’s fundraising year is the annual Children’s Hospital Foundation Ball, held each November. The Ball’s carefully chosen theme is portrayed through lavish and creative decorations which adorn the public rooms of The Country Club of Virginia. Junior Board members spend tireless hours designing, creating, painting, and finally nailing the finishing touches to the decorations that delight and often surprise the Ball patrons.

This year’s Ball will support the relocation of a pediatric dental clinic to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU’s (CHoR) Children’s Pavilion, an outpatient facility which opened in March 2016. The future of integrated pediatric health care includes the incorporation of dental care as an important component of the overall health and well-being of children. By relocating the dental clinic to the Pavilion, parents will be able to easily coordinate multiple visits to physicians and their child’s dentist in one central location.

The need for primary dental health care in Virginia is significant. Only 53% of Virginia children on Medicaid, ages 1 to 20, have received preventive dental services, which equates to 233,000 eligible children in need of, at a minimum, preventive dental care. Funds from the 2018 Ball will be used to purchase dental exam chairs, equipment and supplies needed for the clinic to be fully functional. Dental clinic visits are expected to have a 20% increase following the move. Thanks to your support, more children will have the opportunity to receive regular, convenient, preventive care and learn about the value of oral health in their lives.
