The Be Strong, Go Gold Gala 2018 Another Big Hit!
It was yet another evening to remember on Friday at the Be Strong, Go Gold Gala 2018 to Defeat DIPG.
We were sold out for the third straight year, with, BY FAR, our biggest crowd ever (over 300 people).
We again raised more DIPG awareness, with many more new faces and new supporters, we honored our DIPG Angels and DIPG Warriors.
This year, we went in with a goal of raising over $100,000.
To this point, two days later, we have flown past that and raised $142,967, which will continue to go towards research and funding for a cure for DIPG.
We had a few items we would still like to auction off. So, in interest of moving these great offers to support the event, we are hosting a 24-hour online auction.
Head on over to https://one.bidpal.net/bestronggogoldgala/browse/all to take a look: Girls lacrosse gear and registration, dance classes, quarterback training, Little Gym birthday bash, fitness classes and a stunning diamond ring!
With some big bidding, we can even get to $145,000- and who doesn’t want to see MORE funds go directly to DIPG research for a cure?
But act now, because ALL bidding ends at 8pm PST on Monday, September 17th.
Here is a tiny sneak peek collage from the Gala from Cassandra Hamilton Photography.
Stay tuned all week for more from the Gala, including a link to the red carpet photos and candid shots from the Gala.
Thank you to everyone who made our third #BeStrongGoGoldGala such a successful evening, our most successful event to date!
