On March 8, Hasbro Children’s Hospital’s Monopoly Ball packed the R.I. Convention Center with 1,100 supporters, the largest crowd ever to attend the hospital’s annual fundraising gala. The event celebrated the 20th anniversary of the hospital’s opening in 1994 and raised $1.4 million to support its critical programs, including those in the Child Life Services department, which provides pediatric patients and their families with a sense of normalcy during hospitalization.

This year’s event, inspired by Hasbro Inc.’s Monopoly game, featured sales of a special Rhode Island edition of the game, which is also being sold online, at the hospital gift shop and at participating CVS Caremark Corp. and Toys‘R’Us locations, with 100 percent of the sale price benefiting Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

“The future of our children’s hospital remains exceptionally bright thanks to the generosity of all the individuals who have given of themselves, over the past two decades, to help keep Hasbro Children’s Hospital at the forefront of pediatric medicine,” said Dr. Timothy J. Babineau, president, Rhode Island Hospital/Hasbro Children’s Hospital and president and CEO, Lifespan. •
