Featured 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 are excited to partner with new organizations in northern and southern Mississippi to spread the knowledge of Batson Children’s Hospital with others.
