The Fourth Annual Cheers for CHOP was a celebratory evening at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA, to benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

On Feb. 25, 2017, we brought down the house with live entertainment by Biz Markie and the all ’90s band White Ford Bronco, and a crowd that was ready to dance all night long. Besides live entertainment, dancing and cocktails, this festive evening featured an incredible silent auction and wine sweepstakes.

The 2017 event benefitted the Division of Pulmonary Medicine at CHOP. Pulmonary Medicine at CHOP was named among the top four in the nation, according to the 2016-2017 ranking of Best Children’s Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.

Cheers for CHOP is hosted by the Friends of CHOP, a dynamic group of supporters who are committed to vibrant fundraising efforts that help the Hospital advance its mission to provide exemplary care to patients, advance innovative research and share knowledge with the world.

The Friends of CHOP is comprised of grateful families and spirited supporters who are among the Hospital’s greatest ambassadors, promoting CHOP as the charity of choice in the Philadelphia region.

We hope you’ll join us next year!
