Help create miracles for pediatric patients and attend the 22nd annual "Thanks for Giving" Miracle Ball on Saturday, Nov. 19, at The Hershey Lodge. The ball begins at 6 p.m. with a reception and silent auction, followed by dinner, dancing, and entertainment provided by Group Du Jour.

The auction will feature dozens of items including tickets for sporting and entertainment events, autographed sports memorabilia, designer jewelry and handbags, weekend getaways, pottery painted by Miracle Children, a guitar signed by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, GIANT Center suite tickets, and much more. During the event, guests will have a chance to win a “His and Her” luxurious getaway, which includes an overnight stay at the five-star Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa in western Pennsylvania, golf clubs, and diamond earrings -- a prize package worth $4,000. During the program and dinner, Miracle Child Sammy Hill and her family will share how Children’s Hospital helped Sammy after she was critically injured when a tree branch fell 70 feet onto her head. Rick Herring, president of GIANT Food Stores, will be presented with the inaugural Miracle Innovator Award for his outstanding leadership and commitment to Children’s Miracle Network.
