On Saturday, October 5th, guests gathered at The Conrad, in Washington, DC for the Heroes Curing Childhood Cancer Gala.
Since its inception, the Heroes Gala has raised nearly $5 million in support of our cancer program and built a legacy of hope that touches every aspect of our care-and, in turn, the life of every child we treat.
Over $950,000 was raised for 2019’s Gala with the $280,000 raised during the evening’s Live Auction dedicated to the Willie Strong Professorship.
THANK YOU to all of the #williestrong Guests and Sponsors who supported the evening and our Emcee, Doug Kammerer.
The Willie Strong Foundation is excited to partner with Chance For Life to find a cure for pediatric cancer. Thank You to Chance for Life for donating $100,000 directly to the Willie Strong Foundation to fund the Hughes professorship at Children’s National. This will ensure that the boldest and brightest doctors are able to join the fight through their research.
