A la Carte, hosted by the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Auxiliary, raises over $100,000 annually to make the children of our state better today and healthier tomorrow. Mark your calendars for April 1-10, 2022, and prepare to enjoy a premier silent auction and Restaurant Week to TASTE & TOAST OUR TOWN!

Due to COVID-19, we will not gather in person this year, however, we know that the children of Arkansas, need you now, more than ever.

This year, you will peruse an online premier silent auction and with a special ACH Auxiliary a la Carte token, you’ll receive a discount on orders from local restaurants and beverage locations throughout central Arkansas!

In 2006, the ACH Auxiliary teamed up with the Arkansas Children's Foundation to host Miracle Ball, its first black-tie fundraiser for the hospital. At this annual event, guests celebrate the joys of the holiday season and the miracles that happen every day at ACH. Miracle Ball has become the signature event of the social season in Central Arkansas, raising more than $800,000 annually.

The 2021 Matching Fund Drive and Online Auction raised over $848,000! Thank you to our sponsors and community supporters for your generosity. Congratulations to Mary Olive Stephens, our winner of the lucky winner of the beautiful diamond necklace and earrings set generously donated by Jones & Son Fine Jewelry!
