The Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) Auxiliary donated $1.4 million to Arkansas Children’s Hospital recently to support expert pediatric care for the children and families of Arkansas and beyond.

“The ACH Auxiliary is so proud to support Arkansas Children’s Hospital,” said Ashley Parker, 2022 ACH Auxiliary president. “The past few years have brought a number of challenges, but we are incredibly thankful for our donors, members and leaders who help support the mission of making children better today and healthier tomorrow.”

Since 2011, the ACH Auxiliary has raised more than $1 million annually to support Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

“We are grateful for the ACH Auxiliary’s commitment to Arkansas Children’s Hospital,” said Fred Scarborough, president of the Arkansas Children’s Foundation. “The Auxiliary’s devoted work, incredible ability to fundraise, and passionate volunteerism is inspiring and plays a critical role in Arkansas Children’s long-standing commitment to provide healthcare to the children of Arkansas.”

Founded in 1967, the ACH Auxiliary raises funds through annual initiatives, including the Holiday Card Project, Miracle Ball, a la Carte, ACHievers, Playaway Gift Shop and the Race for a Healthier Tomorrow.

The group has approximately 450 members.

The funds received by The ACH Auxiliary’s annual gift supports programs and services, including child abuse and prevention services, Arkansas Children’s Research Institute, and the Palliative Care Program.
