Duke Children's Gala

Over 320 guests attended the Duke Children’s Gala, the premier fundraising event for Duke Children’s, on April 21, 2018, at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. Emcee Jim Kelly of MIX 101.5 led the attendees through an evening of camaraderie, celebration, and support for patient care and research at Duke Children’s. The evening, presented by Delta Airlines, included the sharing of several patient stories, a live auction, a Sip & Sparkle drawing presented by Fink’s Jewelers, and special appearances by Greg Olsen from the Carolina Panthers and Duke Men’s Basketball player Grayson Allen. Hosts Ann M. Reed, MD, and Allan Kirk, MD, PhD, also presented the inaugural Duke Children’s Hero Award to Stanton Simmerson of Duke University Hospital and Jim Kelly. The event raised $200,057 for Duke Children’s. Thank you to all our Duke Children’s Gala supporters, sponsors, and attendees.
