2019 Storybook Ball

On October 19, 2019 at The Castle at 130 Columbus Ave., the Storybook Ball will celebrate its 20th year of supporting pediatric care at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC).

This year’s Storybook Ball will showcase the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition programs at MGHfC, which provide multidisciplinary care and expertise in gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic, nutritional and feeding disorders in infants, children and adolescents.

Nearly 4 million babies were born in the United States in 2018, and many of them likely experienced a gastrointestinal (GI) condition in their first year of life. In 2018 alone, there were 24,959 outpatient visits, 1,730 inpatient encounters and 3,539 procedures at MGHfC related to GI conditions. These conditions not only have a direct impact on a child’s physical health, but also the quality of life and emotional well-being of their entire family.

As a leader in the research and treatment of GI disorders, the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Team is making significant advancements and changing the way pediatric care is delivered around the world.

We hope you can join us to celebrate Storybook Ball’s 20th anniversary. To learn more about the Gastroenterology and Nutrition Program at MGHfC, please click here.

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 healthcare organizations across the country and within Boston, however, Massachusetts General Hospital 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.
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.
2016: Winnie the Pooh at the Castle In 2016, the 17th annual Storybook Ball featured Medical Genetics, a program that specializes in the evaluation and care of patients who have health problems with a genetic or metabolic basis. The skilled team within medical genetics has extensive experience treating a comprehensive range of genetic conditions including: Angelman Syndrome, Autism Spectrum disorders, Cleft lip and palate disorders, and Pitt Hopkins Syndrome to name a few. Funding from the 2016 Ball went to support genetics research, genetic counseling sessions, telehealth consultations, and resident physician training.
