Don't miss Dallas' sweetest gala: the 30th anniversary Children's Cancer Fund on Friday, April 27, at 7 pm. You can expect sweet smiles, sweet styles, and sweet stories of survival in a candy-themed wonderland.
The benefit will include a children's fashion show featuring 22 patients aged 5-15 from Children's Medical Center in Dallas, accompanied by celebrities and live and silent auctions. And of course there will be dinner, drinks, and dancing. Enjoy entertainment from Ray Johnston Band and music provided by the Jordan Kahn Orchestra, with special guest DJ Tony Romo (yes, that Tony Romo!)
Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach are returning as honorary event chairmen, while Candice Romo and Hollie Siglin will be co-chairing the event.
Children’s Cancer Fund (CCF), founded in 1982, champions kids in their fight against cancer through strategic investments in research and care in North Texas. The group seeks to partially relieve the burden of obtaining and administering funds for pediatric cancer research and treatment at Children’s Health and for selected research at UT Southwestern Medical Center, both nationally recognized programs for the investigation and treatment of childhood cancer.
