I haven’t had an excuse to get dressed up in over a year, but that all changes on Friday night! A few weeks ago, my dad surprised me with sponsoring a table at the National Brain Tumor Society’s annual fundraising event, The Gray Gala which is hosted here in Boston. Our table will be entirely made up of family, and I cannot wait to attend!
To raise money for the NBTS, there will be a live auction hosted by hockey legend Ray Bourque (I’m hoping to snag a pic with him and find out what his connection is to brain cancer) which I won’t be able to participate in because I spent all of my money on a dress to attend the event, but watching a live auction is always a fun time!
There will be several guest speakers, including the parents of Devin Suau (#whynotdevin – I will definitely need to wear waterproof mascara) and NBTS executives who will hopefully be sharing updates on the latest advancements in brain cancer research & awareness.
I’m going to give a full recap after attending the event (with lots of pictures!) but it’s my understanding that several doctors and surgeons in the neuro-oncology field attend, as well as brain cancer patients and survivors. I can’t wait to meet other attendees and hopefully learn more about the NBTS and what they are all about.
Special thanks to my parents for sponsoring a table and contributing to such a great cause!!
