Kid for a Night” Combines Fun and Fundraising for St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital

More than 850 adults enjoyed a night of fun and games at the annual "Kid for a Night," St. Luke's Children's Hospital signature fundraising event on June 2 at the Boise Centre.  

For 25 years, local adults (21 and over) have been encouraged to act like kids again all for a good cause. The event hosts an evening of games and activities, music, dancing, a spectacular silent auction and a delicious dinner.

It's not your typical gala event, as the more than 850 guests are encouraged to come dressed up for the theme or in their favorite jeans and T-shirt. This year the theme was Peter Pan and Neverland, and all guests were expected to check their adulthood responsibilities at the door, think happy thoughts and play as though they never grew up.

Not only is "Kid for a Night" a wonderful opportunity to have a great time, the event makes a real difference for the kids at St. Luke's, Idaho's only children's hospital. "Kid for a Night" has raised more than $7.5 million since its inception in 1992.
