PHOENIX CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL 20TH ANNUAL BEACH BALL TO BENEFIT CHILDREN'S HEART CENTER

Coinciding with the hospital’s 30th anniversary, this year’s Beach Ball gala will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2013. The Barcelona–themed event will bring together members of the community and beyond to celebrate the world-class care that the Phoenix Children’s Hospital has continued to provide to the Valley for three decades.

Beach Ball GalaThe event will be held at The Phoenician luxury resort in Scottsdale, and Apollo Group/University of Phoenix will be the proud presenting sponsor.

“Each year, Beach Ball brings together members of this community who are giving of their time and generosity to benefit one of the largest and most respected children’s hospitals in the country. We are so fortunate to be a part of a community that fosters development with such a strong spirit of generosity,”
Steve Schnall, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Phoenix Children’s Hospital said.

The Children’s Heart Center at Phoenix Children’s Hospital is the premier regional referral center in the Southwest for children with heart disease, and is the fifth-largest program of its kind in the United States. It proudly offers the most comprehensive inpatient and outpatient pediatric cardiac care to infants, children and teens with congenital heart defects, rhythm disturbances, heart failure and other cardiac-related problems. The Center’s surgeons perform nearly one heart transplant each month.

Proceeds raised from the 2012 Beach Ball reached nearly $1 million – a goal that this year’s event chairs hope to exceed for the Children’s Heart Center.

ABC15 and Phoenix Children's Hospital

ABC15 Telethon Raises $156,760 For Phoenix Children’s Hospital

Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation teamed up with ABC15 for a one-day telethon. The event ran from 4:30am – 11pm on Wednesday, April 11 and raised a record-breaking $156,760 to support Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Arizona’s only licensed children’s hospital, providing world-class care for kids in more than 40 pediatric specialties.

ABC15 on-air personalities Amy Murphy, Connie Colla, Andi Barness, Kirk Yuhnke, Steve Irvin, Amber Sullins, Rebecca Thomas and Susan Casper broadcasted live throughout the day from the new patient tower on the hospital campus. Donors were asked to give by calling the live phone bank, going online to www.abc15.com or, stopping by any Walgreens. ABC15 coverage in News and programming included interviews with patient families, pediatric experts, community supporters and special guests.

“Not only did ABC15 exceed its ambitious goal of raising $100,000 in one day for Phoenix Children’s Hospital, they did a masterful and heartfelt job of telling our patient family stories,” said Steve Schnall, the hospital’s Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer. “I want to express our gratitude to the entire ABC15 team as well as our generous community.”

On hand to show their support were Mayor Stanton, the Diamondbacks Luis Gonzalez, fitness trainer and ABC star, Chris Powell, Cardinals players Nick Eason, David Carder and Isaiah Williams as well as Cardinals cheerleaders.

Many local companies stepped up and gave checks on-air while their employees staffed the phone bank, including sponsors Desert Schools Federal Credit Union, Jasper Air, Sanderson Ford and Zerorez Carpet Cleaning; as well as Arizona Central Credit Union, Art of Merlot, Carl’s Jr., First Credit Union, IHOP, McLane Sunwest, Sagicor Life Insurance Company, Scripps, Sleep America, Vemma, and Walgreens.

“Our first telethon benefiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital was a wonderful success,” said Anita Helt, ABC15 Vice President and General Manager. “We couldn’t have achieved our goal without the support of our corporate sponsors and caring community.”

ABC15 Telethon focused on many of the miracle stories happening each day at the hospital; as well as updates about Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s major expansion, which is bringing its special brand of family-centered care to even more patients and families. Every dollar raised will have a direct impact on patient care and critical programs and services, many of which are not covered by medical insurance.
