Harvest Ball 2014

The harvest season is upon us and we are fortunate to be located in one of the world's most productive agricultural regions. 

Children's Hospital's tradition of honoring the harvest season dates back to 1997, a time when hospital donors would join together and celebrate the harvest while raising funds to benefit the patients treated by pediatric specialists at Children's Hospital. 

We invite you to join us for Harvest Ball 2014, hosted this year by Kevin and Denny Tweed.  You will enjoy a wonderful evening of fellowship in a beautiful environment.  Children's Hospital's commitment to becoming the best children's hospital in the  nation starts with your support and continued philanthropy.

Legacies of Healing

At Children's Hospital, we know that illness and disease do not discriminate based on age.  Debbie Henricks (right in photo) was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 19.  Treatment put her into remission, and as a cancer survivor she eventually married Rick Henricks and created a wonderful life in Oakhurst, California.  Debbie supported Children's Hospital with gifts while living, and her philanthropy as a planned gift was transformational. Debbie passed away at the age of 52 and to date, gifts from the estate of Rick and Debbie Hendricks total nearly $465,000.  

Her best friend of 32 years and estate executrix, Susan Spores knew that Debbie wanted to help Children's Hospital give kids hope for healing and a bright future. 

If you would like to speak with someone about how to include a gift for the patients at Children's Hospital in your estate plans, please contact Brad Stith at 559-353-7196.



Because of You...

  • We offer every child in Central California access to high-quality, comprehensive healthcare services regardless of their ability to pay.
  • Patients and their families receive help and healing right here in our community.  Your support helps keep lifesaving pediatric medical treatments available to our neighbors and friends.

Children's Hospital has one sole purpose, to care for kids. Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, we respond to children with pediatric emergencies, chronic diseases and acute injuries.

We believe deeply in the power of philanthropy to save children's lives. When you donate to Children's, your investment is helping to fund lifesaving technology, advance clinical services, provide a safety net for children with little or no private medical insurance, and create a healing environment that enriches the experience of our patients and their families.
