A wondrous place for you and me
We’ve rolled out the magic carpet to fly to a whole new world. This year’s Gala will transport you to an exotic Arabian marketplace and palace featuring live musicians, fortune tellers and a henna tattoo artist. You will be amazed by an exhilarating fire performance troupe, belly dancers, and world-renowned mentalist Craig Karges.
This year’s Gala will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm at the Connecticut Convention Center. Your support of the Gala ensures that all children, from infants to adolescents, receive the highly specialized medical and surgical services Connecticut Children’s offers. From neurosurgery to oncology, to orthopedics, and everything in between, our accomplished pediatric subspecialists treat even the most complex conditions in a state-of-the-art facility designed especially for kids.
This year’s Bid 4 Kidz will support the new Infusion and Dialysis Center, the first of its kind in Connecticut. Connecticut Children’s is committed to enhancing the care experience for children who need infusion therapy. Patients who need infusion therapy on a regular basis for extended periods of time may begin to feel defined by their disease. Receiving treatment in an over-crowded, windowless room can make that definition bleak and discouraging. By making a gift in support of the new Center, you are providing a space that will effectively redefine a child’s outlook on life and on themselves.
We invite you to participate by attending, donating or sponsoring the Gala, serving as a member of the Honorary Committee or donating an auction for our live or silent auction. For more details, please call Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation at 860-537-5700.
