Building blocks are the theme of this year's 26th annual Golisano Children's Hospital Gala.
It symbolizes both advancement in pediatric care and construction of the new hospital. They expected about 800 people to show up.
The evening featured a live auction where guests had the opportunity to bid for a say in hospital room design and creation.
"The community here tonight is raising money to help fund the hospital. We serve children in the whole New York State. Practically every county in New York State," said Mark Siewart, Golisano Children's Hospital Board Chair.
Interactive floor games, bubble tubes and displays were also auctioned off. These pieces will fill the the new hospital playroom and other areas throughout the hospital.
