For Patients and Families
Friends of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is a volunteer organization of members supporting the mission of Children's Hospital through fundraising, community awareness, and services to patients and their families, along with the hospital's faculty and staff.
We raise funds to support Children’s Hospital through the following events:

Our community outreach includes:
- Red Wagon Project
- Children’s Miracle Network events
- Along with volunteer and promotion support for Nashville Predators' Hockey Fights Cancer games, Music City Tennis Invitational, Arrington Vineyards Harvest Party and other Children's Hospital events as needed.
And we directly help support patients and their families by coordinating:
- Weekly lunches
- Monthly dinners
- Monthly Pizza Bingo Night
- Monthly fun events and activities for patients at the hospital
