Involving the community is important to the founders and sponsorship opportunities are available. This event will take place on Thursday, August 31 at TSRHC. Tickets can be purchased online for $25 (or $30 at the door). For additional information on featured artists and photos from previous years, view our Summer Colors website.

It’s Time for Treasure Street, TSRHC’s Signature Fundraiser Event

treasure street tsrhc

Once again, we’re pleased to announce that the 18th annual Treasure Street fundraiser will take place this Thursday, Oct. 17, on the grounds of the TSRHC campus.

The Treasure Street event is a key component of our mission to bring high-quality, state-of-the-art medical services to children with orthopaedic conditions. More importantly, the funds generated by events like Treasure Street allows us to take a multi-disciplinary approach to care; each child requires an individualized solution to their specific needs, regardless of his or her family’s ability to pay.

This year’s event brings back a “treasure street” of fantastic food, live music, a raffle and outstanding auction items. It will take place from 6:30-10:30pm; tickets cost $100 per person.  This year’s theme is “The Great State of Texas.” Tickets can be purchased online.

Families Helping Families

One of the reasons the Treasure Street event is so special to us is because it was created by the family of a former patient. Since its inception in 1996, the fundraiser has grown exponentially. In the first year, the event generated $150,000. But to date, the event has generated more than $8 million to help TSRHC families. Today, we consider the Treasure Street fundraiser our signature event.

This year’s event will likely be attended by more than 1,000 individuals that care about children’s health.

The 2013 chairs are state Rep. Dan Branch of Dallas and his wife, Stacey. The honorary chairs are philanthropists Dee and Dodge Carter. The chef chair is Janice Provost of Parigi.

How Can I Help?

There are many ways that you can be a part of Treasure Street.

If you are unable to attend on Thursday, you can still support Treasure Street by donating to Passion for the Patients. Donate to Treasure Street or TSRHC to commemorate any of life’s celebrations: birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and more. Or memorialize a friend, loved one or co-worker with your gift. And rest assured that your contribution goes precisely where it’s needed most – to promote the health and happiness of TSRHC kids!

But the easiest way to help is to buy a ticket and join us at Treasure Street for the festivities. We can’t wait to see you on Oct. 17!
