  • LIGHT UP THE NATION - In 2011, CCRF, along with "Santa" Dirk Nowitzki, celebrated the Holidays by Lighting Up The Nation for the joy and future of our children. For every $50 contributed, donors' names adorned Gift Tags on our Christmas Tree or Menorah and they received Harry our Holiday Conductor Bear, while a matching Bear was sent to a child in the hospital undergoing cancer treatment. Light Up The Nation brought smiles, joy and hope to children across the country while furthering research for pediatric oncology.

  • THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD, DID - In 2009 and 2010, L.A. LIVE (across from STAPLES Center) was transformed into a winter wonderland of trains, conductor bears, candy canes, and much more!  Thanks to our sponsors whose names adorned the fun and colorful trains and decorations, L.A. Live became a little more magical.

  • KINGS 4 KIDS NIGHT 2003 to 2010 - On Thursday, December 18, 2003 due to the generosity of our donors, over 1300 children and their families were able to attend a very special Los Angeles Kings game.  As a culmination of this fund-raising endeavor, donors received Children's Cancer Research Fund's "We Care Bear" and a matching Bear was given to children in the hospital who are undergoing cancer treatment.  "KINGS 4 KIDS NIGHT" and our "We Care Holiday Bear" project were a huge success, making the Holidays truly special for children with cancer and their families.
  • CENTURY CITY 4 KIDS "WE CARE HOLIDAY BEARS" - Created by CCRF, the Holidays, with the help of all our friends in Century City, delivered smiles to children in the hospital.  By purchasing a Christmas Teddy Bear or Chanukah Teddy Bear, a matching Bear was delivered to a child undergoing cancer treatment. (started Winter 2002)
  • "ALL STAR" SPORTS CARNIVAL - On June 21, 1992 CCRF launched the first Sports Carnival with the support of all the sports teams of Los Angeles.  Having raised over $100,000 the first year, this developed into one of the best events joining sports and the community on behalf of the children. (Carnival continued through  '94 with great success).
  • TIP-A-KING - CCRF was the recipient of this fundraising event with the Los Angeles Kings.  On Sunday, March 3, 1991 over $260,000 was raised!
