Children's Ball 2018

UPMC Children’s Ball

Children's Ball

This year’s UPMC Children’s Ball took place on March 24, 2018 at Heinz Field. Children, parents, grandparents, and friends embarked on an "Under the Sea" adventure and got to meet some cute undersea creatures, learn about marine life, sing and dance, show their artistic side, and interact with special guests as Heinz Field was transformed into an underwater extravaganza! The event also featured strolling performers, delicious food, under-the-sea-themed entertainment, and balloon artists.


Proceeds from the 2018 UPMC Children’s Ball benefitted the Matilda Theiss Early Childhood Behavioral Health Program at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC​. For over 40 years, Matilda Theiss has served as the cornerstone of early childhood mental health services at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC and offers a variety of vital programs to promote the health and well being of pediatric clients and their families.
