86th Annual Charity Ball: “The Golden Ticket”                                                             

86th Annual Charity Ball: “The Golden Ticket”
Held on Saturday, February 4, 2017
At the St. Petersburg Coliseum

The All Children’s Hospital Guild Evening Branch has a proud tradition of hosting the annual Charity Ball to raise funds for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. This years colorful theme from Willie Wonka "The Golden Ticket" enchanted and dazzled the guests by the incredible, edible realm of chocolate and sweets everywhere. We thank all the sponsors, volunteers and all the donations for making this such a special event for the hospital and all who attended.

We are excited to announce we are on our second year of a four year pledge of raising $1,350,000 for the Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Nursing Excellence Program and a new state-of-the-art pediatric ambulance that will become a national prototype. 

You can again play an important role in helping Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital by contributing GIFT CERTIFICATES or NEW ITEMS for fundraising at the next 2018 Charity Ball. Cash donations are also welcome! In appreciation, your name will be included in our 87th Annual Charity Ball Program that will be distributed to more than 400 attendees the night of the event.
