Created in 1991, the Advisory Board of the Children’s Research Fund is comprised of former Campaign and Ball co-chairs. This group of experienced fundraisers and philanthropists serve to guide and advise each year’s new campaign co-chairs, to help ensure a successful campaign. This group provides important continuity from year to year. This group leads the selection process, and actively engages in the consideration of future campaign and ball chairs.
