Cleveland Clinic Children's 27th Annual Gala
Saturday, May 6, 2017
Hilton Cleveland Downtown Hotel

Cleveland Clinic Children’s is honored to be supported by individuals and organizations who share in our belief that every child deserves the chance at a happy, healthy and productive life. Thank you to our generous corporate partners, individuals and families who helped make the 27th Annual Cleveland Clinic Children’s Gala a celebration to remember.  More than 800 guests came together to honor two inspirational Courage Award recipients, Breanna Sprenger and Maisie Nowlin for their bravery and perseverance during difficult medical journeys.  With the outpouring of support, $1.2 million was raised to advance innovative pediatric research and enhance world-class patient care.

Philanthropic support allows Cleveland Clinic Children’s to provide a healing environment throughout our locations and facilities, support services to help patients and families such as Child Life, Art Therapy, and School Based Healthcare and the opportunity to conduct research that translates to more personalized, innovative care for our young patients.

Philanthropic gifts come in all shapes and sizes and each and every partner has the power to make a difference. Whether supporting our annual gala, launching a cause-marketing program, or providing a gift to a priority that is meaningful, there are many ways to get involved. The generosity of others provides opportunity and hope to families who need it most and we are incredibly grateful.
