Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, and our guests who celebrated with us at The Peabody Hotel at this year’s FedExFamilyHouse Gala. With your support, we raised $1.2 million!
The generosity and devotion of our supporters enables us to continue to provide free, welcoming accommodations to more than 32,000 patients and family members who travel to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital each year. We are grateful for your meaningful support. Thank you for helping our families flourish!
Save the date for the 2023 Gala, April 22 at The Peabody Hotel!
The FedExFamilyHouse Gala, one of the largest and most exclusive charity events in the region, benefits FedExFamilyHouse, a home away from home for out of town families who have a child being treated at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN. The Gala is attended by prominent supporters from around the country who have generously supported the event with more than $1 million in funds each year. The event is created and operated by a team of incredibly dedicated volunteers and community leaders.
In all, we are grateful for the enduring generosity of our supporters who make this event possible. We are looking forward to coming together once again to help families flourish!
In the last 12 years, more than 295,000 family members have relied on FedExFamilyHouse, a home away from home for families whose children receive expert care at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Because of you, patients like 17-year-old Ella Morrissey, Le Bonheur’s 50th heart transplant recipient, and her family have been able to find peace and hope within our walls.
The Morrisseys called FedExFamilyHouse home for weeks while awaiting Ella's transplant. Having safe, comforting accommodations, free of charge and just steps from the hospital allowed the family to focus on Ella's care and recovery.
FedExFamilyHouse is a crucial resource for many families, and children need us now more than ever.
