Twenty-six years ago, the Pediatric Oncology Resource Team (P.O.R.T.) at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital was founded by a group of parents who shared the same experience—their child had been diagnosed with pediatric cancer or blood disorder. From this experience a powerful bond and a beacon of light entered the world to help future families with unmet needs.

You have been an important partner to P.O.R.T. over the years and we appreciate your support. While COVID may prevent us from gathering in person for the 2021 P.O.R.T. Light up the Night event, these families are still in need of the services P.O.R.T. provides. We invite you to join us for a three-day online auction full of unique items and special pieces designed for you by P.O.R.T. kids! 

Browse, Bid and Buy items

Auction Opens: Tuesday, March 16 at 8 a.m. 
Auction Closes:
Thursday, March 18 at 10 p.m.

In addition to the auction, you may also make an outright gift or fund a specific need of P.O.R.T. such as the care bags given to each family who receives a diagnosis of cancer.

We hope you can join us and continue to help families in 2021!
