CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Driscoll Children’s Hospital’s 28th annual Fiesta de los Niños will bring its signature combination of fun, food and music to the American Bank Center Exhibit Hall (1901 N. Shoreline) on Friday, Jan. 24.

As it was in the beginning, the event’s mission remains the same: 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 2019, with more than 1,500 people in attendance, Fiesta grossed more than $850,000.

Funds from this year’s event will support the Heart Program at Driscoll Children’s Hospital. Specifically, the money raised will go toward a new heart-lung machine, diagnostic fetal imaging equipment, and upgrades to electrophysiology and cardiac catheterization.

Guests at Fiesta de los Niños will enjoy mobile bidding for silent and bid board auctions. There will also be a live auction, a barbecue dinner, and entertainment by country music artists Josh Abbott Band.

The program begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails and live music by Still Crazy.
