This year we will be hosting a virtual event for our annual Hope Gala!
In true 2020 style, the 6th annual Hope Gala will look a bit, well, un-gala-ish. We at SSF have adopted a theme for 2020 that keeps our action moving forward: childhood cancer doesn’t stop, so neither will we!
While lamenting about what we couldn’t do this year, we quickly realized this is not at all what Sam would have wanted and it’s just not us. We fight for All the Kids, plain and simple. If it needs to look different this year, then so be it.
Insert: The 2020 Very Un-Gala. What is an Un-Gala? Well, it is what we can do vs. what we can’t do.
We can share with you the great work SSF strives to continue during the pandemic such as the meaningful research funded this year ($125,000 just in 2020), the work from the Youth Ambassadors and Ava’s Avengers, shining a light on Heroes, and honoring Forever Heroes; it’s awareness, it’s advocacy, it’s support, and it’s because of you that we are able to continue this important work.
This is a FREE virtual event! Just join our FB live event and tune in to join the fight! Search for 2020: The Very Un-Gala.
Q: But wait! Isn’t this a fundraiser?
A: Well, if you insist! 🙂
Thanks to our generous partners and sponsors we will have a few options to support the fight through an online auction that will begin September 19th and last until 10:00 pm, September 25th. The auction will include amazing items ranging from an exclusive golf package at Hazeltine Golf Course and a HUGE shopping spree with Baumgartner’s Furniture, Carpet Values, and Westlake’s Hardware, to Legos and wine baskets. In addition to the week-long, online auction, there will also be a raffle for a KT Diamond Jewelers piece valued at $3,000 (pics coming soon)! Their quality and design are the best around – you won’t be disappointed! You can browse our complete collection at www.32auctions.com\ SSFSuperSeptember.
This year, each donation can be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 thanks to our partners in the fight at Equipment Share! Donate today by texting GIVE to 573-312-3409 and your donation will be doubled!
Join us as we will not stop fighting. As long as kids are fighting cancer, so will we.
