Fundraising Events

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.

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.
