Community Event

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has cared for thousands of children every year and touched the lives of a million more…maybe even a child right in your own community. What better way to show your support than considering planning your very own fundraising event.

Each year, many generous and dedicated people host fundraisers to benefit CHOP. Whether you're planning a formal affair or a casual family fun gathering, organizing an event is a wonderful way to touch the lives of kids who rely on Children's Hospital for care, cures and hope.

And, you don't need experience to make your event a success — just the energy and enthusiasm to make it happen. The information here will help you get started.
