2017 Hope Gala

Our Sixth Annual Hope Gala will be held on September 23, 2017 at the Overland Park Convention Center.

We are excited to announce that we have secured a larger space for our Silent Auction and After Party while our dinner will remain in the main ballroom. This will give us even more space to have a great time raising funds for awareness and precision-based research to shut down the activators of childhood cancers.

This will be an evening filled with fun and fundraising for awareness and research grants that work to find targeted therapies of childhood cancers.
