Plan your own event or fundraiser

Anyone, from kids to corporations, patient families to volunteer groups, can plan an event benefiting Children's.  All of the proceeds from these events can go to the area of the hospital that you feel is important.

The type of event is up to you!  Here are just a few examples of events that have been successful in the past.  The possibilities are endless - be creative!

This golf tournament is a 4-ball scramble format that attracts over 140 players!
