What's Going On at Riley

Trim a Tree for Riley
On October 22, 2014, Kohl's volunteers arrived at Deaconess Gateway to help with our Trim a Tree for Riley event.  Volunteers wrapped and decorated our voting boxes for our Christmas tree contest.  Through their generous employee volunteer program, we not only received hands-on help for our event, the Deaconess Riley's Children Services will also receive a $500.00 grant from Kohl's.  We want to thank Kohl's for their helping hands and generous spirit.

Mad Max Ride for Riley
The Mad Max Ride for the Kids at Riley is in the 7th year of fundraising to raise money to support both Riley Hospital in Indianapolis and Deaconess Riley. As of June 2013, we have raised more than $130,000. The event began with a ride from Deaconess Gateway to Burdette Park where a live auction including birdhouses painted by our Riley patients took place.
