The Big Fresno Fair and Valley Children’s are extending their longstanding partnership with the $4 “Fill the Need” Day at the 2020 Big Fresno Fair, designed to help raise funds to support Valley Children’s mission to increase access for lifesaving healthcare for the 1.3 million kids living in the region. The Big Fresno Fair is offering a special $4 “Fill the Need” admission ticket that will be good for Thursday, October 8 at the 2020 Big Fresno Fair! Half of all ticket sales for that day will benefit Valley Children’s!
Year one of this partnership produced some incredible results! A total of 18,748 $4 Fill the Need Day tickets were purchased (either in advance online or at the gates on that day), which raised $37,496 to support Valley Children’s!
“We are honored to have The Big Fresno Fair choose Valley Children’s as its ‘Fill the Need’ Day beneficiary. The Fair’s generosity will go a long way as we continue to invest in the health of our kids and in our goal to offer services within 30 minutes or 30 miles of every family in our region. With the help of community partners like The Big Fresno Fair, we are helping more children than ever before.”
- Todd Suntrapak, President and CEO of Valley Children’s Healthcare.
Mark your calendars for the 2020 $4 “Fill the Need” Day on Thursday, October 8! Tickets will be going on sale soon. Stay tuned! It’s a great way to save BIG and give back to support our community!
By uniting the Fair, the Valley’s largest annual event and Valley Children’s, the region’s largest pediatric healthcare network, a powerful partnership has been created to raise funds to make a difference for Valley kids and their families. For nearly seven decades, Valley Children’s has provided lifesaving services for the kids in the Valley. Today, the Madera hospital and specialty care centers throughout the region serve on average more than 1,000 children each day.
