Nearly 450 gala attendees filled the ballroom that was transformed by a Tree of Hope, which represented the hope, inspiration, and courage of each patient as they navigate their own unique and individual cancer journey. The tree was decorated with ribbons, each a different color representing a different type of cancer.
The event raised $2.4 million to support Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center, which will open for patient care later this year. Guests enjoyed a three-course dinner, dancing, and cocktails while bidding on more than 40 silent and ten live auction items, including unforgettable trips and priceless experiences.
