Children’s Ball 2022

The Founders Auxiliary Board is honored to be partnering with the Children’s National Hospital Foundation to support the 2022 Children’s Ball. This annual black-tie gala and fundraiser will take place on Saturday, April 2 at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and will feature a live musical performance by Sheryl Crow.

The funds raised by the Founders Auxiliary Board for this year’s event will be allocated to the Board’s major gift and annual grants programs to Children’s National Hospital. In recent years, the Founders Auxiliary Board has awarded major gifts of $1.5M for the Immunotherapy Initiative to treat cancer and other diseases and $1.3M to launch the Hospital’s Telemedicine Command Center, in addition to $1M through annual grants.

We thank you in advance for your support to enhance the lifesaving care Children’s National Hospital provides patients and their families.

I have had the great honor to work alongside our very talented & dedicated board members, to present the annual A Vintage Affair event, a major fundraising event benefiting Children’s National Hospital. I stand in awe of our board members for their dedication and commitment to the success of A Vintage Affair, which has raised over six million dollars since 2015.
