The UVA Children's Hospital Main Event is a premier fundraising event, drawing nearly 500 prominent individuals from the Charlottesville community. Held at the beautifully adorned Keswick Hall, the Main Event offers a sophisticated evening of silent auction, food and drinks, gaming, and dancing.

Main Event 2017 proceeds will go to enhance our pediatric inpatient unit on the seventh floor of UVA Medical Center. Our goal is to transform the space to into a colorful and imaginative environment, while also providing a comforting sanctuary for children and their families. Plans include new spaces for respite and renewal for adults, as well as interactive play areas for children undergoing treatments. Further, the changes to the seventh floor will also allow us to establish a convenient location for a new bone marrow transplant program, strengthening the outstanding care provided to pediatric cancer patients at UVA Children’s Hospital.

At UVA Children's Hospital, children receive special care in a warm, friendly environment designed especially for them and their families. UVA Children's Hospital offers total healthcare—everything from well-baby visits to heart transplants—and conducts breakthrough research in childhood diseases.
