Pioneering the Future

Children's Ball 2017 Dance Floor
The wildly successful 2017 Children’s Ball event was held on Friday, April 7. Its theme, Pioneering the Future, reflected our ambition to take already exceptional care for children and families to new frontiers through innovative care and cutting-edge research. 

Thanks to the tremendous support from sponsors and individuals, more than 800 people attended the grand event and enjoyed the spectacular activities and entertainment presented throughout the evening, raising $3 million for pediatric care at Children’s National in the process. We hope you will join us next year for the 2018 Children’s Ball!
