Celebrating 25 years of beach ball

Since its inception in 1995, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation Beach Ball gala has contributed over $17 million to provide hope, healing, and the best health care for children and their families.

Beach Ball 2018, Noche en Havana, will benefit the expansion of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Phoenix Children’s.

We invite you to save the date – Saturday, March 3, 2018 – and join us at Camelback Inn Resort & Spa for the 25th Annual Beach Ball. Experience an incredible evening of friendship, entertainment, silent and live auctions and more while having a ball in honor of the smallest and most fragile of babies.

What is Beach Ball?

Beach Ball is the largest annual fundraising event of Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. As one of the Valley’s most premiere events, attendees are encouraged to leave tuxedos and ball gowns at home and embrace Beach Ball’s unique beach vibe. As a vital source of funding for Phoenix Children’s for more than two decades, guests are transported to a different beach destination each year to enjoy a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, and live entertainment.

Beach Ball 2017 highlights

Nearly 900 guests escaped the Arizona desert for the beaches of Cape Cod during the 24th Annual Beach Ball at Scottsdale Hangar One held in February 2017. Chaired by Susan Menchaca and Cristina St.Clair, Beach Ball raised more than $1.1 million to benefit the Hospital’s Department of Surgery.

Funds raised will help the program continue to recruit the very best surgeons and build additional operating room space to meet growing demand. Read more about Beach Ball 2017 on our blog, and find photos from the event on Flickr.
