St. Louis Children’s Hospital is fortunate to enjoy the generosity of so many people and organizations in the community. Frequently, people spend their own time and money to organize a fundraiser to benefit the hospital. These fundraisers include everything from lemonade stands, bake sales and car washes, to golf tournaments, car shows, carnivals, and more.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our community partners are hosting virtual fundraisers. For more information about hosting a virtual event, please click here.
It is St. Louis Children's Hospital's highest priority to keep our community safe. To help ensure safety, we recommend that all community events be done virtually or with 10 or less attendees. BJC, along with St. Louis Children's Hospital, has made the difficult decision to extend our suspension of hosting or participating in in-person events through the end of March 2021. We apologize and are hopeful that by mid-2021 we will be able to provide more support to all community partners. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Hannah at [email protected].
If you are interested in hosting your own fundraising event to benefit the hospital, please give us a call. We can offer you guidance to help make your event a success. Please contact Hannah Heimos at 314.286.1270 or [email protected] for more information.
