Gala Mission

Celebrating its 28th year, the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Gala is our premier fundraising event. Each gift funds the important research taking place to save and improve the lives of our children, from birth through adolescence. When you support the Gala, you're providing hope. You're helping fund the breakthroughs. You're making science in the lab become a reality in the hospital for our patients and families facing challenging medical diagnoses – now and in the future.
