Friends of Children’s Hospital raises funds for Batson Children’s Hospital primarily through special events. We annually host several fundraisers in the metro Jackson area and also receive funds from events hosted by generous businesses and organizations throughout the state.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with new organizations across Mississippi to spread awareness and build support for Batson Children’s Hospital, the flagship hospital for Children’s of Mississippi.

Doo Dah Day
New Car Giveaway
As of March 18, 2020, the prize drawing has been postponed as a result of the Corona Virus Pandemic. A new date for the Prize Giveaway will be set approximately 4 weeks following the lifting of CDC recommendations for group gatherings, social distancing and similar restrictions which prevent us from having Key Finalists participate in the Giveaway event. Key Finalist Drawings are being suspended. The last 4 Key Finalists will be drawn in the weeks leading up to the new Giveaway Date. All other rules will remain the same.
0.5k – A Run for Everyone
The first ever Mardi Gras 0.5k – A Run for Everyone event was a great time in the Township of Colony Park while participants walk, ran or strolled the sidewalks in front of the stores to collect beads, king cake, samples, etc. and enjoyed an after party that included food, fellowship and even a magic show! We had over 30 Raffle Items that were given away at the end of the night. We hope everyone had a great time and look forward to next year’s event!
“Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler”
BankPlus Presents Enchanted Evening is the signature fundraising gala for Batson Children’s Hospital. The evening features a Select Silent Auction, delicious food and great live entertainment. Guests are encouraged to wear white attire as part of the “end of summer” celebration in August.

for Children Project
The annual BankPlus Light-A-Light for Children is near and dear to Mississippians, especially those whose lives have been touched by the Batson Children’s Hospital. Inspired by the patients and their families who must spend the holidays in the hospital, it is our goal to make their time there as special as possible.
