About Cheers

Cheers 2018 brought hundreds of Philadelphia’s most fun and philanthropic young influencers together for a great cause. The fabulous evening of music, cocktails, and dancing raised more $610,000 for the Division of Orthopaedics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). It was nothing short of an unforgettable night for an inspiring cause! And we couldn’t have done it without you.

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.

Over the past five years, Cheers for CHOP has raised more than $2.7 million to benefit CHOP programs such as Pulmonary Medicine, Child Life and Orthopaedics.
