2023 Heroes Ball Is a Spectacular Success

Hasbro Childrens Heroes Ball
The spirit of giving and ohana (family) filled the air as 600 attendees gathered for a tropical, Hawaiian-themed Hasbro Children’s Hospital Heroes Ball on the grounds of Rocky Hill Country Day School in East Greenwich. The annual event, held on August 19, 2023, was chaired by Melisa Verrecchia and co-chaired by Denise Chakoian and Keith and Lynne Kelly and raised $1,137,450 to support the hospital’s mission. Of the total raised, $293,350 benefited the evening’s fund-a-need for the hospital’s nationally renowned medical psychiatric program.
