ABOUT THE BALL

A signature fundraiser for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) since 1957, the Carousel Ball is a can’t-miss event for dedicated CHOP supporters and the entire philanthropic community.

Over the past 60 years, the Carousel Ball has raised more than $10 million for Children’s Hospital — accelerating discoveries that have profoundly changed pediatric medicine, impacting the lives of millions of children around the world, and building the foundation for tomorrow’s breakthroughs.

This year’s black-tie event will raise funds 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.
