Introducing Children's Hospital's 2021 Signature Fundraising Dining Series: There's no place like home

With the health and safety of everyone in mind, Children’s Hospital has postponed the 40th annual Sugarplum Ball until it is safe to gather again. Until then, we are proud to present a safe and socially distanced three-part “at home” dining series, created in partnership with Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group, and benefiting Children’s Hospital.

Our There’s no place like home series, presented by The Lemoine Company, features elegant culinary offerings, and allows patrons to enjoy our whimsical Wizard of Oz theme, all from the comfort and safety of home. Each three-course menu will feature an elegant menu and wine pairing with a focus on local ingredients. You will drive down the Yellow Brick Road to pick up your meal box(es) that come complete with warming instructions and a how-to cooking video led by a Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group chef.

Your impact:

For more than 65 years, Children’s Hospital has provided expert care for children across our state and region, regardless of his or her family’s ability to pay. As the first and largest freestanding children’s hospital in Louisiana, we rely on generous supporters to meet the ever-changing health needs of our children. This event, and your continued support, helps make that care possible.

Our July dining experience highlights the extraordinary care provided by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Children’s Hospital. The NICU is a designated Level IV NICU providing the highest level of care within the state of Louisiana. The unit has 36 critical care beds in a state-of-the-art, 11,000-square-foot facility with both private and semi-private rooms.

The NICU provides care for newborns and sick infants with problems resulting from prematurity, birth defects or acquired conditions. Backed by the largest group of pediatric specialists in the state, our neonatologists care for babies with conditions ranging from common newborn problems like jaundice or mild prematurity, to more complex, life-threatening diagnoses.
