The Carousel of Possible Dreams

Take a Holiday Spin and Support CHOC!

The holidays are a time for giving and making a difference for those who need it. There are many different ways to do this that can be meaningful and help us remember the spirit of the season. One way is by supporting the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. This year, specifically, you can support the Thompson Autism and Neurodevelopment Center at CHOC while also having a merry time taking a spin on the South Coast Plaza Carousel, or for the purposes of this event, The Carousel of Possible Dreams. This special day will be happening on December 3, 2023.

The goal this year is to raise $20,000 for the Thompson Autism and Neurodevelopment Center at CHOC by fundraising and then spinning 50 times on this carousel. Riders/fundraisers will get the chance to be a part of a magical experience at South Coast Plaza and also make a difference to those in need during the holiday season. Below are details for how to support or participate in this event:

  • Sign up and join Team Daps Magic at and create individual fundraising page.
  • Invite friends, family, colleagues, mutual acquaintances, social media followers to support your efforts by donating online on your fundraising page.
  • Take a ride on the South Coast Plaza Carousel on December 3 at 8:00 AM.
  • Have a chance to win prizes by being a top fundraiser!

We hope you will join our team, or support it, and help Daps Magic make a positive difference during this holiday season!
