ACH Homecoming
Sponsorship and Volunteer Opportunities

All Children’s Hospital will host its annual Homecoming Dance for patients unable to attend their own homecoming due to hospitalization or life-limiting illness. Our celebration is a multi-day event, beginning with a September Dress and Jacket Shop, where patients and their guests can select a free, stylish outfit and accessories for the upcoming dance.

Our Day of Style is held several hours before the event, letting attendees enjoy some well-deserved pampering while professional hair and makeup specialists work their magic.

The excitement continues as the patient and guest anticipate the evening to come – and the Homecoming Dance of their dreams. At 7 p.m., patients are escorted along the red carpet into an evening of music, dance and special memories. Families are invited to gather and connect in an on-campus coffeehouse, where they can watch and enjoy the celebration on the big screen.

As a second home to many of our sickest patients, All Children’s hosts this event to help patients celebrate this rite of passage. Our homecoming will include great entertainment, exquisite decor and a chance for patients to experience a “piece of normalcy” and gather together for a Homecoming Dance. Our event honors the All Children’s Hospital values of compassion, hope, inspiration and teamwork to produce a most memorable experience for patients and families.
