Kosair Children’s Hospital

Bourbon & Bowties

Each year, more than 600 people attend Bourbon & Bowties, a special fundraising event that honors a child representative of the thousands treated by Kosair Children’s Hospital. Kosair Children’s Hospital: Anna-Maria’s Story features 2014 honoree Anna-Maria Beck and the 14-year-old’s efforts to support the hospital that has helped her.

In 2007, Anna-Maria was diagnosed with a low-grade ganglioglioma of the hypothalamus and optic pathways that caused hydrocephalus, a life-threatening collection of fluid in the ventricles of her brain. Since then, she has had twelve brain surgeries, six rounds of chemotherapy and many MRIs.
