Children's Hospital will have our 15th annual Harvest Ball appropriately on the last day of the $42 Million Campaign for Children's. Campaign Co-Chairs, Bill and Linda Smittcamp, will again graciously host this black tie gala at the Wawona Ranch Packing Shed on Friday, September 30th, 2011

This fun-filled evening is sure to be a fundraiser to remember! Packed with spectacular silent auction items, a wine tasting and delectable dinner to tantalize the taste buds, and fabulous live auction with the help of ABC 30's Warren Armstrong, are just some of the highlights that will make a worthwhile night even that much more wonderful.

Sponsorships from $1000 to $25,000 are available until July 1st, 2011. Tables ($3,500 or $2,500) are available until we are sold out. Auction items and donations are currently being accepted, and greatly appreciated.  Contact Sarah Schmidt (559-353-8619 or sschmidt@childrenscentralcal.org) for all reservations or donations.

The following is a list of items that the hospital needs on an  ongoing basis. You can contribute at the event, or if you are unable to attend, you can help now by donating now when you click on the link below. Thank you for your consideration!



Child Life - Educational & Inspirational Tools ($100)
Everyday items provided in the playrooms and classrooms occupy minds and spirits while bodies are healing. Here is a short list of items your gift could help fund are:  Crayons, toys, books, educational tools, DVDs, video games and birthday gifts. 


Patient Help Fund ($250)
Many families arrive at Children’s in emergency situations and are unprepared when their child has a devastating diagnosis. The Patient Help Fund assist patients and their families with non-medical expenses – like gas money, food, car seats and living expenses.


Glider Chairs for Rocking our Patients ($500)
It is time to replace our old wooden rocking chairs with new, more comfortable glider chairs. Our wish is that every unit throughout the hospital will have enough glider chairs to rock a child to sleep.


Rehabilitation Department ($1000)
Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Center is a very important part of the healing process. We treat conditions such as auto-immune disorders, orthopaedic injuries, cystic fibrosis and much more. Your gifts support needed equipment and devices to allow our patients to regain strength, confidence and the ability to get back to living like kids should.


Champion for Children’s ($2,500)
There are many needs at Children’s Hospital Central California. Your unrestricted gift will help meet these needs in various clinics and programs throughout the hospital. You will truly be a Champion for Children with this very special gift.
