When we close our eyes and dream, we see what is possible.

Welcome to The Carousel of Possible Dreams - CHOC Follies XXII. On February 26th, civic, business and philanthropic leaders -- cast mates of the 2019 CHOC Follies -- will climb on board South Coast Plaza's Carousel and go around 50 times to help reach their fundraising goal.That's when the fun begins. Using nothing more than their cell phones, each rider is tasked with a $2,500 or higher fundraising goal before they complete their laps.

The CHOC Follies Team goal is to together raise $100,000 for CHOC Children's Foundation.

Since 1964, CHOC Children's has been steadfastly committed to providing the highest quality medical care to children.

The CHOC Follies is a treasured, annual event for the whole family -- an Orange County event that in the span of 21 years has raised just over $10 million in critical funds to ensure that children receive the very best medical care. 

During the annual CHOC Follies, community members gather to sing and dance in support of CHOC Children’s mission to advance children’s health. This involves raising awareness and funding for CHOC’s mental health initiative, a full continuum of care for children and families facing mental health challenges.

CHOC Children's Foundation also extends help where it is needed most through KidsCARE, its unrestricted fund that sustains essential but non-reimbursable services like music therapy and allows CHOC to assist all families, regardless of their ability to pay.

Now CHOC Follies cast mates are kicking off their 2019 fundraising through The Carousel of Possible Dreams - CHOC Follies XXII. 

You can help us turn the CHOC Follies cast mates' Dream into reality today. Search for a participant on the CHOC Follies Team, and support the riders who have committed to this dizzying feat. Thank you in advance for your support!

Festival of Children Foundation is the fiscal sponsor of this event.
