Daisy Days

You Make Hope Bloom!

Daisy Days logo For more than 60 years, people throughout the community have supported the kids at CHOP through Daisy Days. The monthlong, grassroots event began in 1953 with paper daisies for donations, and has evolved over the years to include change collections, parades, carnivals, luncheons and more. Learn more about the history of Daisy Days.

Now, during the Daisy Days month of May, you can get involved in a variety of fun ways! Participate in the 31-Day Challenge — a Daisy Days Active Event; join us for The Runway — a Daisy Days Fashion Event; or use your creativity to plan your own fundraising event. Get the details:
