The 2024 Heroes Ball Was a Record-Breaking Success!

The 2024 Heroes Ball took place on Saturday, April 13, at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street, with nearly 800 guests in attendance. The theme of the elegant, black-tie event was Where the Wild Things Are, with nods to the children’s classic included throughout the evening. The event benefited the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital and raised a record-setting $1.45 million.

Every year, we are honored to celebrate this incredible event and welcome individuals and companies for a wonderful evening dedicated to a great cause. Though Heroes Ball has come and gone, the generosity we experienced will have a lasting impact on the Tampa community for years to come.

In this year's event, we were honored to present the 2024 Community Heroes, Sidd and Ami Pagidipati, who, along with their family, recently announced a $50 million donation toward the future of pediatric care and the new children's hospital.

We would like to acknowledge our Presenting Sponsor, and chairs of this event, Vik & Sneha Patel, and Max Sponsor, Rooms to Go Foundation. We are grateful to have such a supportive community, and we thank you for your generosity, providing us with the resources to expand our pediatric services across Tampa Bay.
