There are endless ways to fundraise for Children’s Hospital Foundation. In addition to participating in one of our established events, many clubs, organizations, businesses and individuals find their own unique ways to help each year. From silent auctions and backyard BBQ’s to fashion shows and art benefits, we’re happy to work with you on your special event.
