The Be Strong, Go Gold Gala 2017 Another Great Success!
It was another memorable evening on Saturday at the Be Strong, Go Gold Gala 2017.
We were sold out for the second straight year. We raised more DIPG awareness, with new faces and new supporters.
DIPG Angels and DIPG Warriors were honored.
And this year, we raised nearly $92,000 from the Gala for the Avery Huffman Defeat DIPG Foundation, which will continue to go towards research and funding for a cure for DIPG.
There is absolutely no way we could have done it without each of our sponsors, donors, auction bidders and attendees.
And the event could not have gone off as well as it did without the countless volunteers that made Saturday night another incredible success.
To everyone who had a part in the Gala- to those who sponsored the event at various levels, to all of the in-kind sponsors who added all of the elegant touches to the evening, to our event emcee and auctioneer, to the video production team, to the Raise the Paddle donors, to those who donated drinks and desserts, to those who spent endless hours with set up and clean up, to all who donated auction items and to all who bid in the auction and to anyone else we missed: simply, THANK YOU.
Stay tuned all week for more from the Gala, including a link to the photos from the Gala.
Here is a tiny sneak peek collage from the Gala from Cassandra Hamilton Photography.
Thank you to everyone who made our second#BeStrongGoGoldGala such a successful evening!
