Children's Ball 2018


The Children’s Research Fund is pleased to announce the 2018 Campaign and Children’s Ball co-chairs: Chris Keogh, Holly and Matt Maloney, and Trish Rooney. On May 10, 2018, they kicked off the campaign with a cocktail party and revealed this year’s theme, I’m In. We hope you will save the date for this year’s Children’s Ball on December 1, 2018, and are pleased to announce The Boeing Company as a presenting sponsor.

All funds raised this year will support the Children’s Research Fund’s $10 million commitment to the full spectrum of research activity through the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute at Lurie Children’s. This support is crucial to the continuum of research, taking discoveries from the bench to a patient’s bedside, and ultimately into the community. We are proud to support such a noble cause and to advance a wide range of treatments and cures.
