Storybook Ball Over the Years

Proceeds from Storybook Ball over the past 21 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.
2020: Rainbow Fish In 2020, the Storybook Ball was virtual for the first time in the event’s 21-year history. The virtual gala highlighted MGHfC’s response to COVID-19, as clinicians and staff stepped in to provide care for adult and pediatric patients admitted to Mass General with the virus.
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.

Support Storybook Ball

MassGeneral Hospital for Children, the oldest provider of pediatric services in Boston, has offered comprehensive, compassionate care to children since 1821. This is a tradition that every physician, nurse and staff member at MGHfC is committed to keeping—and expanding—into the 21st century and beyond.
