Joining or Hosting an Event

Events have the power to energize and inspire. Whether you attend a Children's-hosted event — including the Dallas Children's Health Holiday Parade, Children Helping Children Tennis Tournament and Red Balloon Run & Ride — or you plan an event of your own, take action and help those who need it most.


Hosting your Own Event

Host your own event with Children’s as the beneficiary.

In 2013, more than 100 individuals and community groups hosted events that benefited Children’s — ranging from lemonade stands and birthday parties to golf tournaments and luncheon fashion shows. These events raise approximately $1 million each year to support medical advancements, program enhancements and facility expansions.

For more information on how you can host a fundraising event to benefit Children’s, contact Kyra Barnett at 214-456-8384 or review our Special Events Guidelines and complete the online application.
