Orange & Blue Gala

Before nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas died from cancer in 2003, his dad made a pinky swear promise to continue to help children with cancer and their families. Since then, over $11 million has been raised to support families across the U.S. We invite you to join us in Charlotte at the 2nd Annual Orange & Blue Gala, celebrating and honoring the 13th anniversary of that pinky swear promise.
