We All Shine Brighter, Together

On October 17, 2020, Storybook Ball will celebrate its 21st year of supporting pediatric care at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) with a virtual event full of all the fun and impact you've come to expect from Storybook Ball.

MGHfC provides a full spectrum of care for newborns, children and adolescents from New England and around the world. As a pediatric hospital within a general hospital, MGHfC is uniquely positioned to care for the entire family over the course of a lifespan. This commitment to family-centered care has never been more evident than during the COVID-19 crisis, as MGHfC clinicians and staff stepped in to provide care for adult and pediatric patients admitted to Mass General with the virus.

We can't wait to "sea" you virtually! To learn more about MGHfC, please click here.

Highlights from the 2019 Storybook Ball

Each year, the Storybook Ball profiles a patient and family who have received care at MGHfC. The 2019 Storybook Ball showcased MGHfC's Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition programs, which are dedicated to bringing hope and relief to children and families impacted by GI conditions and diseases. Relive the 2019 Storybook Ball by watching the video below, which features 11-year-old Liam.

Storybook Ball Over the Years

Proceeds from Storybook Ball over the past 20 years have allowed MassGeneral Hospital for Children to provide extraordinary care to our youngest patients and their families; to recruit and support the best physicians, surgeons and researchers; and to speed the development of new technologies and cutting-edge research that can transform clinical approaches locally and globally.

The past generosity of Storybook Ball supporters has helped establish new programs and facilities, such as the Coordinated Care Clinic and the state-of-the-art Francis H. Burr Proton Beam Therapy Center, enhancing our ability to serve children with complex physical and emotional needs. Like most health care organizations across the country and within Boston, however, Mass General is not immune to external challenges. In the face of economic adversity, MGHfC is preparing to pursue its mission of caring for those who need our care most by renewing our commitment to the wide range of existing pediatric programs for which this hospital is renowned.
2019: Toy Story In 2019, the 20th annual Storybook Ball featured Gastrointestinal Health and Disease. The Pediatric GI and Nutrition Program at MGHfC provides comprehensive care for children with gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic and nutritional disorders. Funds raised at the 2019 Storybook Ball supported research aimed at improving the health of children with chronic conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, liver disorders and celiac disease.
2018: 101 Dalmatians In 2018, Storybook Ball showcased MGHfC’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, which is dedicated to the behavioral, cognitive and emotional health of its patients and families. The Pediatric Behavioral Health team provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents with a full spectrum of behavioral or emotional difficulties in inpatient and outpatient settings.
2017: Beauty and the Beast at the Castle In 2017, the 18th annual Storybook Ball featured the transformational initiatives at the MGHfC Food Allergy Center, where cutting-edge research and evidence-based, multidisciplinary practice are utilized to provide the best possible care to patients with food allergies. Funds raised at the 2017 Storybook Ball supported pediatric research initiatives and patient care programs in the Food Allergy Center.
