2023 Starlight Ball

The 21st annual Starlight Ball took place on November 18, 2023. With a “Gatsby” theme, this year’s Starlight Ball Co-Chairs, Amy and Scott Douglas, and Erin and John Sullivan helped make this glamorous event the cats pajamas! A champagne tower, delicious nosh, and the trio Savoy entertained guests as they arrived. During the seated dinner, Brandon and Melanie Weeden were presented with 2023 Miracle Maker award. Former National Football League Quarterback and Oklahoma State Alumni, Brandon Weeden, helped established the CHF Brandon Weeden Endowed Research Chair in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery. To date, Brandon and Melanie have raised more than $1.8 million for the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Program.
Guests were also inspired to give by hearing the powerful and emotional stories from Whitney Allen and Merydith Easter. They shared the critical need for funding to support the continuation of trainings that the Center on Child and Abuse and Neglect host each year in Oklahoma. Children’s Health Foundation is making sure that the sustainability of the programs that help prevent child maltreatment in Oklahoma can be funded for years to come.

Guests danced the night away to a local band, Drive, enjoyed a photo booth hosted by SmileTime and a raffle by Diamonds Direct! This year’s Starlight Ball raised more than $330,000! Thank you to our Event Co-Chairs, as well as their fabulous committee members. They helped make this year’s gala a roaring success! Thank you to our sponsors, donors, and attendees for not only making this event possible, but helping Children’s Health Foundation continue its essential work to make a difference in the lives of Oklahoma children and their families.
