2013-BBB-logoPlease join us Nov. 1 at The Farm in Tallahassee for the fourth annual Belt Buckle Ball! In addition to a fun evening of food, entertainment, bull riding, funny-money poker and the “Best Buckle” Contest, you can help make miracles happen for Tallahassee’s children in need of specialized pediatric care at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital – our Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

Many of Tallahassee’s children and their families unexpectedly find themselves at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital needing specialized pediatric care not available to them locally. Children’s Miracle Network works to provide the pediatric department with the much-needed state-of-the-art medical equipment to make these children well. The dollars raised locally from events like the Belt Buckle Ball, help provide the hospital with pediatric research grants, as well as patient education materials and diversionary items.

VIP sponsors are invited to attend a pre-event Shands Ambassador Family Meet-and-Greet from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and will have the opportunity to visit with some of the children of the Tallahassee area and their families who have benefitted from the miracles Shands is able to make every day.

Event festivities will kick off at 6:30 p.m. at The Farm located at 4300 N Meridian Rd in Tallahassee. Beginning with dinner, and followed by the Houston Deese Band, this promises to be an entertaining evening.
