Golisano Children's Hospital Events
Golisano Children’s Hospital hosts a wide array of annual events to support the children we care for. Thanks to the strong desire our community has to make a difference in the lives of patients and their families, we’re able to hold five stand-out events throughout the year. For more information on any of the annual events below, please call Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Office of Advancement at (585) 273-5948.
Each year, we celebrate the joy of life at the peak of spring with the Golisano Children's Hospital Stroll for Strong Kids and 5k Run. More than 5,000 participants joined us in-person and virtually for this event, raising over $260,000 for children in the area!
The summer season finishes up with a special round of golf at the annual Golf Classic in late August. Golfers from all over come together to play at three beautiful courses in support of Golisano Children's Hospital. The Fairport Music Festival is held each August. The festival is a family-friendly environment that includes kids activities, food trucks in addition to 6 stages of music and has raised over $1,786,000 for the Golisano Children’s Hospital.
The children's hospital's Gala, held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center in October means fall is in full swing. The black-tie event brings people together to celebrate our patients and families during a night they'll never forget.
Although a cold time of year, the Children's Miracle Network Hospital's Drive for Miracles Radiothon delivers heartwarming stories of trial and triumph in February. Over the two-day period, stories of hope and healing will be broadcast through air waves and into homes.
