Support Childhood Cancer Patients

Bid for the Kids Gala


The Pediatric Cancer Resesarch Foundation is excited to host you at our 38th annual Bid for the Kids Gala on Saturday, November 6, 2021. The evening creates awareness and raises vital funds that will help PCRF identify and fund leading-edge research with the best hope for a cure for childhood cancer. Together we will dine, dance and bid surrounded by the cool sea at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point, CA.

At PCRF we know firsthand that it can feel overwhelming when trying to make progress and advancements in research. But after almost 40 years of identifying and investing over $51 million in leading-edge research that has led to more survivors than ever before – the fact remains that not all children survive. It is those children, who left us too soon, who remind us that – we must continue funding this important research until 100% of children are saved!

You can make a critical difference in the path of every cancer fighter’s journey.

This difference starts with you! Your partnership with PCRF helps us do better in the fight against childhood cancer.

Mission Focused

PCRF continues the critical work of championing leading edge research that promises the best hope for a cure for childhood cancer. Together, we can advance pediatric cancer research.

Your Generosity Will Keep Hope Alive!

While we cannot gather together, patients and researchers are still counting on us to go above and beyond to support children facing childhood cancer.


Together with other like-minded philanthropists, executives, and community supporters we will come together to raise funds for essential research that improves outcomes for pediatric cancer patients
