Donation guide

Lurie Children’s is committed to providing the highest level of compassionate and comprehensive care to children who are hospitalized on the Regenstein Cardiac Care Unit (CCU).

Many of these patients are living with serious and sometimes life-threatening health complications. Some may be hospitalized for weeks or months as they recover from complex surgeries or wait for a heart transplant.

Your gift will provide crucial resources for our CCU Child Life Specialists to use in their interactions with patients and families, as highlighted below:

Your $100 gift can help offset the cost of bedside mobiles to help soothe and support the sensory development of infants hospitalized on the CCU.
Your $250 gift can help support a Momaroo interactive infant seat to comfort and entertain babies when a parent cannot be present.
Your $500 gift will allow us to purchase a vast supply of story books for parents and the Child Life Specialist to read aloud to hospitalized children.
Your $1,000 gift can provide a variety of distraction items for patients in the unit, such as stress balls, light spinners, thinking putty and more.

What is the Gold COast Fashion Show?
The Gold Coast Fashion Show is the signature fundraising event of the Children’s Service Board (CSB), an affiliated organization of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. In 2019, the event raised over $1,000,000 in support of the Department of Family Services at Lurie Children’s. This year, the board has made a comeback (after canceling the 2020 show) with a week full of in-person and virtual events for our invited guests to support us however they feel most comfortable.
Safety Precautions
All in-person events will abide by CDC guidelines and any City of Chicago restrictions. Specific guidelines related to our in-person events will be emailed out the week of our event. In accordance with Lurie Children’s precautions, all in-person guests will be required to sign a waiver and wear a mask during the event. In an effort to serve our out-of-town supporters or Chicago supporters who wish to not attend in-person events, we have created exciting virtual opportunities, including a livestream of the Thursday, September 23 evening fashion show.

To view and sign the mandatory waiver, please
