21st Annual Valentine Ball

Wednesday, February 8, 2023 • 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Embassy Suites at Destiny USA
Formerly Father/Daughter Valentine Ball, now open to every parent/guardian and their child(ren) age 3 and up.

Proceeds will benefit pediatric mental health services at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Registration deadline: January 27, 2023.

The Upstate Foundation and Salt City Road Warriors are pleased to host Valentine Ball for All on February 8 at the Destiny USA Embassy Suites from 6:30-8:30 pm. This inclusive new format replaces the Father Daughter Valentine Ball, and is open to any child or children (age three and up), and their parent(s), guardian or caregiver. Like the previous ball, however, there will entertainment, special guests, face painting, photo booths, a craft project, gifts and so much fun! Attendance is limited, so register soon!

By attending the Valentine Ball for All, you will be carrying on the event’s tradition of making a difference in the lives of kids at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. This year’s proceeds will help us increase access to mental health services and care for children and adolescents in Central New York, a timely and critical need in our community. There has been a 51 percent increase in the number of child mental health consults over the past five years at the Children’s Hospital, and earlier in 2022, 25 percent of the children at the hospital were there for mental health reasons.

Please join us at this wonderfully re-imagined event and make special memories with a child or children close to your heart.

Your support will make a difference in the lives of children and adolescents, and their families, who are struggling with mental health issues. It is on their behalf – and on behalf of the 100,000 children who receive pediatric services at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital each year – we thank you.
