Dr. Sherin Devaskar, physician-in-chief of Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA said, “Every year, Mattel Party on the Pier attracts a sellout crowd of all generations, and receives such generous corporate and foundation support. It has grown into a must-attend event for local families, and a day which former hospitalized children look forward to attending.  Last year’s event raised a record amount for Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and has allowed us to not only fund many high-priority programs for the hospital, but also to provide the children with continuity of care at our Westwood and Santa Monica locations. In addition, it enabled Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA to augment our telemedicine program which works to connect our world renowned pediatric sub-specialists with partner hospitals locally and globally” (source: press release).

According to the press release, “Last year, Mattel Party on the Pier netted over $800,000 for the hospital and helped launch high-priority programs that benefit boys and girls being treated at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and around the world. Recent support has been directed towards clinical trials for teen and young adult patients in the pediatric hematology/oncology division, the development of new therapies for pediatric patients suffering from leukemias and lymphomas, and to support research in pediatric cancer predisposition and precision medicine.”
