The CHaD Storybook Ball raises funds for many of the programs that make CHaD unique and are not reimbursed by insurance. These and other programs rely on philanthropy to provide the best, supportive care to the children and families in the communities we call home.
We are thrilled to be holding the 2021 CHaD Storybook Ball on Saturday, October 30, at the Castleton Banquet & Conference Center in Windham, NH. Once again, we will welcome New Hampshire's business leaders, philanthropists, and friends of CHaD to gather to celebrate the wonder of youth and the health of our children, and raise critically needed funds in support of CHaD. In a fall-themed gala, we will experience patient stories, celebrate the generosity of our community, and come together in support of our CHaD kids and their families.
WHY CHaD MATTERS
From the routine to the remarkable, CHaD providers and staff care for EVERY child regardless of their ability or inability to pay for the services they require. Philanthropy plays a critical role in sustaining and advancing the many important programs at CHaD. Caring for children costs more than caring for adults, yet reimbursements are much lower. Over 50% of our patients are Medicaid recipients and payments for their care cover only one-half of the expense. Support from our incredible donors, sponsors, and volunteers makes caring for the children of our community possible, and all play a vital role in sustaining CHaD's operations going forward.
