The 2018 CSI Gala was a huge success, thanks to the support of so many generous sponsors and guests! We are grateful for the outpouring of support. A record-breaking $263,000 was raised because of the generosity of sponsors, donors, guests and many dedicated volunteers. 

Your support allows CSI surgical teams to making a lasting impact as they perform life-changing surgeries and provide hands-on training and education to our in-country medical, surgical and nursing partners.

Together we will change lives, strengthen communities and bring hope to children and families in some of the most resource-poor regions of the world. The funds raised will support this work, and you are key to our success. Thank you!
