I had the honor and fun of accepting a check for $43,459 from pop star extraordinaire, Katy Perry! She chose Children’s Health Fund to be one of the charities to benefit from ticket sales from her California Dreams tour. Katy made special tickets available for sale for her US tour through Tickets-for-Charity, and fans could purchase some of the best seats in the house while also supporting charities, including CHF. Not only did I get to go to her fantastic concert (and there were real in-door fireworks), but I hand-delivered a thank you note and drawing from one of our patients. She loved it!
Thanks to Katy Perry, Tickets-for-Charity and these fans, this donation will help us provide 430 comprehensive doctor’s visits to vulnerable kids who would otherwise lack access to basic health care.
