Past Events

In 1997, Rob Griffin founded Lobbying for Children's in response to a need for renovations to our main lobby. The event raised close to $500,000 and, reflecting Rob's vision for the future, evolved into Champions for Children's. In 2000, Champions for Children's raised nearly $500,000 for oncology services. Today, it's an annual event that benefits the Children's Fund, supporting the areas of greatest need at Boston Children's Hospital. Check out photos from our 2016 event.
