Be the Match pulled out all the stops for its signature fundraising event. The Celebrating Our Heroes Gala showcased stories of healing and hope, including a marrow donor and recipient who met on stage for the first time. The evening included a VIP pre-party set off by floor-to-ceiling fringe and silver and blue balloons. Before dinner, guests enjoyed handcrafted cocktails and placed bids on silent auction items. All funds raised by the sold-out crowd will help Be the Match patients receive the transplants they need to beat life-threatening blood cancers.
