Upcoming & Ongoing Events


Going back to school is a stressful time of year… and we have got you covered!

Each year, we throw a special back to school bash for our families to come enjoy. We cook-out, have bounce houses and activities for the kids to enjoy and the parents get to sit and talk with each other. Every child also goes home with a new back pack and gift card to shop for school supplies.



Are you a Buckeye Fan?!

Join us for our spirited night with the best band in the land. Patients and siblings march with the band and also get a preview of all their songs for the new football season. Parents sit and relax watching all the action. After a fun hour of marching, everyone enjoys free time to play and treats. And, don’t forget to wear your OSU gear!



Our most popular and magical event for families is our annual Christmas Party!

Every year it gets bigger and better. Families have the option to get adopted by one of our awesome donors. Donors will then go out and shop for their assigned family. They will shop for coats, clothes and one toy/item for each child. Families are then invited to join a day of fun at Magic Mountain Polaris. We shut down the entire place so our families can enjoy a fun and safe environment. There is a Secret Santa Shop, crafts, games, lunch and more more surprises.
