Goldy’s Fund 4 Kids has been able to help provide hundreds of kids a more positive experience while they are at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Through fundraising we have been able to provide patients with access to iPads, movies, books, toys, and other entertainment when they are unable to leave the hospital or sometimes even their hospital rooms. GF4K has also successfully thrown multiple birthday parties and other themed parties for patients during their stay at PCH.
This hands on volunteering and tangible gifts help keep patients positive during their stay by creating lasting memories, which is an important part of the recovery process. Paul Goldschmidt has also been able to host many patients and their families at Diamondbacks baseball games as a way to distract from the hardships of extended stays at the hospital and give back to the many Diamondbacks fans rooting on the team from their hospital rooms.
Goldy’s Fund 4 Kids will also be throwing its 1st Annual Goldy’s Bowling Bash in November with all funds raised at this event going to Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s new Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders serving many local and national kids in need.
