Supporting children with cancer and blood disorders since 1976

Our Goal of $600,000

$478,759.00

2020 Thanksgiving Ball Gala

If you missed you can still watch.

Although the world has changed considerably these last months, The Valerie Fund’s goals are still the same—to continue to offer the best compassionate healthcare to children battling cancer and blood disorders.

As a result of the pandemic, the need for expanded support in emergency funding has helped ensure our families have money for food, rent and other essential needs. Our focus remains on the patients and the rest of their family.

Critically ill children in our area fighting cancer and blood disorders have benefited greatly from the extraordinary generosity of so many who have attended the Thanksgiving Ball Gala in the past. This year, we will shine a well-deserved spotlight on the healthcare heroes of The Valerie Fund Children’s Centers.

More importantly than ever, we know our fundraising efforts and your collective response will make a difference. We encourage you to lean into this virtual opportunity and invite friends and family from near and far who normally would not be able to join us. We have no doubt these unprecedented times will bring out the best in all of us. They need us and we need you.

Please join us right here on Friday at 7pm to watch the live stream of the gala.
