New this year, the Mad Hatter Tea Party offers children, ages 3-12, a chance to have their own magical Storybook Ball experience.

A parting Storybook gift and refreshments will be included. Tea Party seatings, at 2:00pm, 2:30 pm, and 3pm, are limited. Adult supervision is required. Come dressed for a tea party (costumes encouraged.)
When you support the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, you help imagine healthier futures for all children and you become part of the culture of caring that our providers and staff aspire to achieve by caring for EVERY child no matter their ability or inability to pay. There is never a shortage of ways to be inspired, and the motivation for the CHaD Storybook Ball is simple—it’s a gala-style event for adults, inspired by the childhood memories we all share, and designed to celebrate the creative talents housed in our state and the wonderfully dedicated philanthropists that fill our hearts with gratitude.
Children heal better in a place they know and feel safe. That’s why New Hampshire’s comprehensive children’s hospital has 15 locations offering access to 179 pediatric specialists in 30 specialties, 77 general pediatricians, innovative research and today’s leading treatments, all in an environment that inspires comfort and hope. From the routine to the remarkable, Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock is here when you need us, where you need us.
The 2015 CHaD Storybook Ball raises money for many of the programs that make CHaD unique. These and other programs rely on philanthropy to provide the best, supportive care to the children and families of our region.
