About Kids for Life


KIDS FOR LIFE (KFL) is a 501(3)c organization which began in 1998. The organization was formed to help a dear friend’s daughter obtain a liver transplant. Through fundraising activities inclusive of the Annual KFL Golf Tournament, enough money was raised to help this little girl and she received a successful transplant.

From 1998 until present, KIDS FOR LIFE has hosted SHOTS FORE TOTS and has since partnered with John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to help raise money for children who are in need of major surgeries and/or transplants. To date, since the inception of Kids for Life, over $125,000 has been raised. All proceeds from this event will therefore benefit John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.

KIDS FOR LIFE also hosts other events to help further benefit the Tampa Bay community, including its infamous NO PASSWORD NO PARTY prohibition themed event held each year. Made up of volunteers who are regularly active in the Tampa Bay philanthropic community, KFL works hard to bring FUN events to Tampa to help better our home.

JOHN HOPKINS ALL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, the beneficiary for SHOTS FORE TOTS provides expert pediatric care for children and families from all across the state of Florida and beyond. They provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for infants, children and teens with some of the most challenging medical problems.

The hospital provides access to the most innovative treatments and therapies. Taking part in pediatric medical education and clinical research helps them to provide worldclass care in more than 43 pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties.

More than half of 259 beds are devoted to intensive care level services. The hospital is the regional pediatric referral center for Florida’s west coast. Physicians and community hospitals count on them to care for critically ill patients and to perform complex surgical procedures.
