2016 CSI Gala

More than $200,000 was raised at the 2016 Children's Surgery International Gala. A huge thank you goes out to our generous sponsors for their ongoing support, as well as the many committed volunteers who made the evening a great success. Enthusiastic guests brought Gala attendance to a record high, filling the room with an energy that mirrors the passion Children's Surgery International has for serving children in need around the world. It's about changing lives, one child at a time, teaching others to do the same, and spreading a message of hope.

​Mark your calendars for the 13th Annual CSI Gala, planned for Saturday, April 8, 2017 at Radisson Blu Mall of America.
