Children’s Hospital New Orleans has announced a ticket raffle for the upcoming TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR. The raffle will raise funds for the hospital’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, specifically to support the creation of a new Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Unit. Participants can purchase chances to win 28 suite tickets for the October 26, 2024, concert at Caesar’s Superdome in New Orleans. Seven winners of four tickets each will be drawn and notified on March 23, 2024. The raffle tickets are priced at $200 each, with a maximum of 5,000 chances sold.
The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital New Orleans is the only accredited pediatric stem cell transplant facility in the state. They provide advanced treatments for children with leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and other childhood cancers and blood disorders. The new Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Unit will enhance the patient experience, as it is designed with children’s needs in mind and ensures minimized infection risks through HEPA filtration and separation from patients who may spread infections. This effort is vital, as the hospital expects the number of stem cell transplant patients to increase in the coming years.
All proceeds from the ticket raffle will go towards this project. The hospital’s President and CEO, Lucio A. Fragoso, encourages fans to join in and enter the raffle for a chance to support a great cause while enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Taylor Swift perform live. More information and raffle ticket purchases can be made on the Children’s Hospital New Orleans website.
