Fresh Start Surgical Gifts to Host Annual Butterfly Ball
San Diego-based Fresh Start Surgical Gifts will host their 30th annual “Here Comes the Sun” themed Butterfly Ball on Saturday, October 2 at the Hard Rock Hotel downtown. Fresh Start celebrates 30 years of life-changing work for doctors and staff, and their volunteers, partners and donors who have supported them throughout the process, giving every child a chance to live a life outside of his condition.
Fresh Start Surgical Gifts is dedicated to transforming the lives of disadvantaged youth with physical deformities by providing full reconstructive surgery at no cost to the patient and their family. All healthcare professionals give generously of their time and talent to provide much needed medical care and 100% of all financial contributions go directly to patients. Every dollar donated allows Fresh Start to donate $ 5 in medical services.
Each year, in partnership with Rady Children’s Hospital, Fresh Start in San Diego hosts six weekend cycles of surgery. In each cycle, two days of intensive surgeries are performed by world-renowned surgeons and their teams. Support for medical treatments, laser treatments, speech therapy and orthodontic work is also provided. Fresh Start is committed to taking care of each patient for the long term, working with each patient until the desired medical outcome is achieved.
