The Children’s Ball has been a highlight of the Chicago social scene for decades. The Ball is an evening of excitement and elegance, which celebrates the culmination of the Children’s Research Fund’s annual fundraising campaign benefitting the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute affiliated with Lurie Children’s. More than 1,100 guests attend and the proceeds from the event benefit cutting edge research that stands to benefit children today and for generations to come. We thank our Host Committee members who are supporting the 2018 Children’s Ball at the $25,000+ level.
