Mattel Party on the Pier

Published on October 11, 2020

Party on the Pier is an annual fundraiser for UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital held at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier.

Each October Mattel and UCLA Health host Party on the Pier, a marquee fundraiser for UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital which takes place at Pacific Park and the Santa Monica Pier. This year, event organizers have planned a day of virtual engagement and play since guests can’t gather at the Pier. This year’s special celebration will highlight health care heroes, innovative research, and children facing health adversity.

Each general admission ticket for this year’s at-home celebration includes an event box with Mattel toys and gender-inclusive activities; access to the “virtual pier” with interactive games, exclusive programming and fun activities; and an event-day show featuring inspirational stories, celebrity guests and much more.
