Special Underwriting Opportunities
If you are unable to attend the Benefit, there are a number of ways you can help the Hospital maximize the funds that are raised for its young patients. Below is a list of special underwriting opportunities for important initiatives at the Lerner Children’s Pavilion that will help HSS create a better future for every child who comes to the Hospital for care.
We hope you will consider supporting one or more of these important projects. To do so, consider making a donation.
