The 2020 Hasbro Children's Hospital Heroes Ball

Statement from Lifespan President & CEO Timothy J. Babineau, M.D.
on Postponement of the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Heroes Ball

After much thoughtful deliberation, and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the annual Hasbro Children’s Hospital Heroes Ball, planned for this Saturday, March 7, to a later date.

The ball is a very special annual event and one that highlights the important role of our children’s hospital in this state. We deeply regret having to make this decision—particularly so close to the actual event. However, we must consider the large number of health care providers who would be in attendance, many of whom provide unique and essential health care services to the state and the region. The risk, as low as it would be, of having an exposure to the Covid-19 virus at the event that would require quarantine of these individuals is one that we simply can’t take. These are the physicians, nurses, therapists and other clinicians who care for our children and adults when they are sick or injured. If they were to be quarantined for any reason, the impact on our hospitals would be significant.

Our decision, though difficult, is intended to protect our care givers, our supporters and the patients that we serve.

Since 1994, the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Heroes Ball has brought our community together in an extraordinary show of support for the children in our region.

Proceeds from the Heroes Ball support the hospital’s areas of greatest need, including programs that provide a healing and nurturing environment for our patients and their families. Without philanthropy, many of these programs, such as Child Life and the Healing Arts, would simply not exist.

The evening’s fund-a-need will support pediatric hematology/oncology and the transformation of the fifth floor of the hospital, where inpatient cancer care takes place. Children with cancer often have long hospital stays and experience multiple hospitalizations during their treatment. Your support will enhance their “home away from home” experience while also providing funds to advance knowledge through clinical research and develop important survivorship services. With your help, we will better understand and manage childhood cancers while providing hope to the children and families who rely on us for their care.

If you are unable to attend the Heroes Ball but would like to support the pediatric hematology/oncology fund you can click here. Thank you.
