PANDA supports the Steele Children’s Research Center to help find solutions to childhood diseases

For more than two decades, People Acting Now Discover Answers has collaborated with the Steele Children’s Research Center to fund a critical need. This year, PANDA’s goal was to support the Steele Children’s Research Center’s overall commitment to medical research to find solutions to childhood disorders and diseases. The inspiration came from Dr. Fayez Ghishan’s quote, “If I spend an hour with one child, I help one child. If I spend one hour in the lab, I help 1,000 children.”

This year’s theme was “Field of Dreams” and the event was held April 17 at Chase Field—home of the Arizona Diamondbacks—in downtown Phoenix. The festivities started with pregame entertainment, cocktails & traditional ballpark bites followed by the Children Helping Children Fashion Show.

Fox Restaurant Concepts returned as the title sponsor. PANDA supporters not in attendance were able to participate by watching a live stream of the event.
