About the Carousel Ball

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

Over the past 60 years, the Carousel Ball has raised tens of millions of dollars 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 the Cancer Immunotherapy Program at Children’s Hospital. The program is one of a handful in the country that develops cutting-edge cellular therapy for children with treatment-resistant forms of certain cancers.
