The signature fundraiser for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the Carousel Ball brings together more than 800 of the region’s greatest philanthropists, corporate leaders and patient families for an evening of inspirational storytelling and immediate impact on the patients we serve.

Since 1957, the Carousel Ball has accelerated discoveries that have profoundly changed pediatric medicine, transforming the lives of millions of children around the world and building the foundation for tomorrow’s breakthroughs.

This 2019 black-tie event raised an amazing $3 million for CHOP’s Cardiac Center, where doctors provide world-class care — including performing approximately 600 open-heart procedures a year — and researchers work tirelessly to discover the next breakthrough for children.
