Our Cause

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our most recent Black Tie Tailgate—the one-of-a-kind preview of the Philadelphia Auto Show! The Department of Nursing at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was chosen as the 2018 & 2019 Black Tie Tailgate beneficiary. The record $1.2 million that was raised through these Black Tie Tailgates will support the Department’s patient, family and community programs and initiatives.

For the nearly 4,000 nurses, respiratory therapists and technicians at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, their work is a science, an art and a calling. They are committed to providing highly reliable, safe patient care and excellent outcomes for patients and families, while advancing education and research missions. They are part of the patient & family experience during moments of celebration, but also during the most sorrowful times. When talking with a family whose child has had an experience at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, more times than not, they want to tell you about the many ways the nurses helped to make an unimaginable event the best that it could be, for them and for their child.
