Reaching More Children In More Ways
Each year, champions for children gather to raise money for Arkansas Children’s Northwest, with every dollar staying local. Mark your calendar and join us on Thursday, August 1, and Friday, August 2. This year’s golf tournament will return with four-person scramble morning and afternoon flights, legendary goody bags, and more. Also, please plan to join us on Friday, August 2, for the Gala of Hope for a high-stakes evening. This black-tie gala features casino receptions, gourmet meals, a luxury live auction, and more. This year’s event marks the 30th annual golf tournament and the 16th annual gala. Together, these volunteer-led events have raised more than $22.7 million for children.
Every dollar stays local in support of the Arkansas Children’s Northwest Expansion.
In 2018, Arkansas Children’s Northwest (ACNW) opened its doors with the promise of delivering care close to home for the children in northwest Arkansas. Since then, the region’s first and only children’s hospital has provided care during more than 300,000 patient visits, saving countless trips to central Arkansas for many families. Northwest Arkansas is a story of sustained and robust population growth — Benton and Washington counties experienced an average population growth of 32% over the last two census reports. To remain right-sized for the growing pediatric population of northwest Arkansas, both physical expansion and physician recruitment are key. Increasing care close to home for families will require multiple strategies, including effective scheduling practices, a robust provider workforce, efficient use of well-designed spaces, and, finally, extensive building expansion.
CHILDREN in the rapidly growing pediatric population now receive top-notch care close to home.
