We raised a record high $201,970!

Not a day goes by that I am not reminded that showing up for others, even when you are at your worst, can make any day feel better. Find an organization that moves you, and just show up in whatever way you can. It can really change your perspective on life. I promise you giving makes some of the worst days feel better. Laughing along the way never hurts. When you give people something to look forward to, you create a community of givers that surrounds your mission with love, support and encouragement to keep up the work.

Thank you to those who love me and showed up. Thank you to the guests who showed up for whoever it is they hold close and love too. But thank you most importantly to my boys who gave me the courage to go out on a limb and start it all. I hope one day my OG superheroes look back and say… god damn my mom did that!!!!

I’m told often that what sets us apart is our continued ability to share our authentic message with others. I’m glad I didn’t listen to the person who told me I’ll never be able to sustain an event that brings 600+ people out on a cold, winter January night.

Challenge accepted.

Because every year, we bring the best charity event in the city… and it’s all because of our guests! So… we already got to work. Like I said, it never stops. See you January 18, 2025!

We would like to thank our premier sponsors including Stampone Law, Best Dentist for Kids, ZeroEyes, Northmarq and bartaco Advisors who continue to believe in our mission and stand up for the 1:10 families who need us the most.

We look forward to celebrating with you next year on January 18, 2025!

With Gratitude,
Kelly Gallagher

a night we will never forget!

“ Being a NICU parent changes you. The gala is the surreal moment that you look around a room, full of people who have been there, and realize your premie got you here. The vibe that night and that feeling. it’s indescribable. ”
