Everything’s Coming Up Daisies!
Thank you for being a part of Daisy Days! Because of your tremendous commitment to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, we can continue to make breakthroughs every day that improve care, treatment and long-term outcomes for children.
The 2017 Daisy Days campaign has been one of our most successful to date, involving thousands of CHOP supporters and raising nearly $1 million for our Integrative Health Program, as well as pediatric research, patient care, and specific areas of the Hospital. For 61 years, Daisy Days has served as a monthlong, community-wide show of support for the young patients at Children’s Hospital.
During the 31 days of May
Throughout the month of May thousands of people sent electronic daisies and inspirational words of support to our hospitalized patients. Dozens of schools, businesses and community groups hosted festive, daisy-themed fundraising events during the month. And hundreds of individuals participated in our two featured events.
The 31-Day Challenge
More than $280,000 was raised and 64,000 miles were traveled to support kids at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Thank you for making our second annual 31-Day Challenge an amazing success!
Philadelphia’s top trendsetters and tastemakers joined The Runway, a fabulous fashion event, to display their latest looks and raised more than $160,000 for a truly inspiring cause – young patients at CHOP.
