In Gratitude for Another Great Kids Day

Annual fundraiser supports Children's Hospital Central California; sets new record raising $485,000


The night before Kids Day, something magical already stirred the air.

College students from dozens of campus clubs set their alarms well before the normal time to sell special edition newspapers the next morning. Families in Clovis received automated calls from their children’s school reminding them to watch for students and teachers on street corners when driving their kids to class and asking them to support Children’s Hospital Central California with their purchase of a $1 newspaper. Business leaders up and down the Valley looked forward to a positive experience for team members who accepted the invitation to give back to the community that offers neighborhood children one of the largest and finest pediatric healthcare facilities in the nation.

This year's event set a new record raising $485,000. Children's Hospital Central California, The Fresno Bee and ABC30 wish to send out a big thank you to all who participated in Kids Day on behalf of the patients and families we serve.

Thank you for demonstrating our community’s wide-spread support for our own children’s hospital. Thank you for putting on display the camaraderie that makes Children's a special place.
Thank you for helping to raise much-needed funds for the Hospital.

You helped make the 27th annual Kids Day a great day.
