Beach ball 2018 Raises record $1.3 Million to benefit Nicu
On Saturday, March 3, Phoenix Children’s celebrated 25 Years of Beach Ball with record-breaking success. Chaired by Jami Savage-Gray and Larissa Hoss, Beach Ball 2018 raised more than $1.3 Million to benefit the Hospital’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit, or the NICU. Since its inception in 1995, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation Beach Ball gala has contributed over $18 million to provide hope, healing, and the best health care for children and their families.
The evening at JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa transported guests to Havana, complete with bright lights, Fedoras, and the authentic energy of samba dancers. Noche en Havana highlights included Amy & Paul Goldschmidt receiving the Dr. Herbert J. & Julie Louis “Spirit of Hope” Award, and the amazing story of Santiago – a baby that was brought to Phoenix Children’s for a life changing surgery just 4 hours after he was born. After an incredible showing of generosity that resulted in the funding of 33 new state-of-the-art NICU beds ($40k each) for the smallest and most fragile of babies cared for at Phoenix Children’s, guests closed out the night at the Havana Nights Discount Tire After-Party & Cigar Bar Lounge.
We wish to thank you for all that you do to support our efforts at Phoenix Children’s to provide world-class inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
