Join us Oct. 7, 2017, for the Carousel Ball — a can’t-miss event that defines elegance and festivity. This year’s ball will be especially momentous as we celebrate the many discoveries made at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) that have profoundly changed pediatric medicine — and reveal innovations that will transform the lives of future generations. Come to dance, dine and support tomorrow’s breakthroughs today!


About the Ball

A signature fundraiser for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia since 1957, the Carousel Ball is the highlight of the fall season for dedicated CHOP supporters and the rest of the philanthropic community. This year’s black-tie gala will raise funds for Cancer Immunotherapy, a revolutionary program offering new hope to children with treatment-resistant childhood cancers.
