The 2013 Sugarplum Ball is sold out online.
The 2013 Sugarplum Ball will help fund the expansion of services for the treatment of autism. One child for every 88 and one out of every 54 boys has an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). The Autism Center at Children’s Hospital is growing to meet the needs of families dealing with this life-altering diagnosis. The Center currently provides diagnostic evaluation, medication management and a parent support group for caregivers of children with ASD. However, the Center is expanding to include behavioral treatment for children with ASD and their families, social skills groups, and resource coordination for families. These services will fulfill a critical need in the community and improve the quality of life for children with ASD and their families.

When & Where
Since we opened our doors in 1955, Children's Hospital has continually offered the most advanced pediatric care. With more than 40 specialties, 247 beds and nearly 400 physicians, we are the only full-service hospital exclusively for children in Louisiana and the Gulf South.
As a not-for-profit medical center, the hospital has no stockholders or dividends to pay. Children's Hospital is governed by an independent board of trustees made up of community volunteers. Revenue generated is used to operate the hospital and to expand and advance its services. We are proud to say that it is our strict policy to never turn away a child in need of the medical care we provide based on the family's ability to pay.
