Treasure Street Register
Date/Time: October 11, 2018, 6:30 PM
It’s little wonder that the extraordinary little hospital on Welborn Street has—for nearly 97 years —served as a source of health, hope, happiness and inspiration. Treasure Street, the signature fundraising event of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children was originally established in 1996 to celebrate the transformative work of the hospital and share the remarkable stories of our incredible patients. Since its inception, this enchanting evening among friends and neighbors has raised more than $13 million to support the hospital’s mission and give childhood back to children. As we approach Treasure Street 2018, we’re again reminded of how every day is a new adventure: a chance to discover, imagine, explore, learn and grow.
Something exciting is “Rite” around the corner...and your first-class ticket toward Wonder is waiting. Come join us under the stars on the hospital grounds on Thursday, October 11th for Treasure Street 2018.

How did Treasure Street get started?
Treasure Street was started in 1996 by a TSRHC patient family and their friends. With an initial goal of establishing a special event for the benefit of children with the tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), that first year they raised $150,000. In 1998, a Treasure Street Board of Directors was founded, and they set a goal of making the hospital’s TSC Clinic a “model” clinic for other clinics around the world. In 2007, the Treasure Street board voted to utilize funds raised for the benefit of all patients treated at Scottish Rite Hospital and make Treasure Street the annual signature event of the hospital.
