It all started with a pinky swear...

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, nearly $14 million has been raised to support families across the U.S. We invite you to join us at the third annual Orange & Blue Gala, celebrating the 15th anniversary of that pinky swear promise.

The unforgettable evening will include fine dining and drinks, silent and live auctions, Fund-a-Need, raffles and musical entertainment. Proceeds will further the Pinky Swear Foundation mission to support families' quality-of-life with direct financial aid for basic needs, and through experiences that create emotional support.

  • Dinner and dancing
  • Complimentary Tito's Handmake Vodka cocktails by mixologist DiSean Burns, Euclid wines, and beer
  • Live entertainment by Acoustic 2.0
  • Cocktail orange and blue attire
  • Childcare provided for children ages 3-12

The Orange & Blue Gala returns for its third year to Trump National Golf Club in Mooresville, North Carolina

You're invited to join us the Lakefront Ballroom at Trump National Golf Club, a world-class golf club with views of the beautiful shores of Lake Norman.

Trump National Golf Club will generously be providing complimentary child care to all Orange & Blue Gala attendees. Children must be ages 3+ and bathroom independent. A pizza dinner will be provided. RSVP directly to Nikki Rodin at Trump National at (704) 799-7300 ext. 260 or via email at

In addition to its incredible lake views, the Lakefront Ballroom features cathedral ceilings and a fireplace, creating an elegant setting for the Orange & Blue Gala.

The highlight of the evening are our live and silent auctions, with all proceeds to benefit Pinky Swear.

When you bid on our live and silent auctions or Fund-a-Need, your gift will go toward the Pinky Swear mission to help kids with cancer and their families.

Dance the night away with live musical entertainment by Acoustic 2.0 - the lighter side of Pointless.

Darren Zino and Chris Uhlich will play acoustic music while guests mingle, and DJ the dance portion of the evening.
