About Children’s Hospital Colorado and the CCBD Wellness Program

Children’s Hospital Colorado is the only nonprofit pediatric health care system in a seven-state region and serves more than 280,000 children. Generous support from the community helps Children’s Colorado care for more kids than any other hospital in the area. The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) created the Wellness Program, which is an integrated psychosocial care model for children and families fighting childhood cancer. The clinical diversity of Dr. Bob Casey and his team allows for a tailored, individualized clinical approach for looking after the mental, emotional, and overall health and well-being of each child and family.

About Balmain

The immersive “Through the Looking Glass”-themed evening was presented by Balmain as part of the #BALMAIN4COSF partnership campaign. Pierre Balmain first introduced his “New French Style” over 75 years ago and it immediately became clear to all that his eponymous house was offering a distinctly fresh, bold, and feminine conception of haute couture.

Balmain Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing has been inventively building upon Pierre Balmain’s extraordinary legacy since 2011. The result is a unique and instantly recognizable Balmain silhouette, style and attitude that highlights the singular craftsmanship of the house’s celebrated ateliers, while consistently referencing a rich Parisian heritage.

Proceeds from the evening benefited the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) at Children’s Hospital Colorado by establishing a new endowed fund COSF Advancement in Wellness Fund for the CCBD’s Wellness Program that will continue to be supported by Aspen Snow Ball fundraising efforts for the foreseeable future.
