Driscoll Children’s Hospital’s 27th annual Fiesta de los Niños will bring its signature combination of fun, food and music Friday night to the American Bank Center Exhibit Hall (1901 N. Shoreline).

The event’s mission remains the same as it did in the beginning – to help Driscoll offer more and enhanced services to the children of South Texas.

Fiesta de los Niños is Driscoll’s largest annual fundraising event. Each year, 100 percent of the funds raised from the event directly benefit the hospital. In 2018, with more than 1,500 people in attendance, Fiesta grossed more than $940,000.

Funds from this year’s event will go toward the purchase of a new state-of-the-art Dual-Energy/Ultra-Fast CT (computed tomography) scanner for the Radiology Department at the hospital. The advanced technology of the CT scanner offers faster scan times, less radiation exposure to patients and sharp 3-D imaging.

Guests at Fiesta de los Niños will enjoy silent, live and bid board auctions, a barbecue dinner and entertainment by country music artist Cory Morrow. The program begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails, silent and bid board auctions and live music by Still Crazy.
