Heroes Ball

Heroes Ball Raises $1.1 Million for Hasbro Children’s
as Hospital Celebrates 25th Anniversary

It’s been 25-years since Hasbro Children’s first opened its doors, and on Saturday, March 2, nearly 800 guests filled the Rhode Island Convention Center to celebrate the milestone during the hospital’s Heroes Ball, raising $1,140,334 to benefit its work.

Funds raised through the event will support hospital programs that would not be possible without philanthropic support, such as child life and the healing arts. The evening’s special fund-a-need, which generated $266,900 of the total raised, will support renovations to the pediatric pre- and post-surgical areas.
