Thank You Bid for the Kids Gala

Bid for the Kids Gala

Our sincere gratitude and appreciation goes to the many sponsors, donors, and volunteers who made the 35th annual Bid for the Kids Gala an incredible success.

During this celebratory evening we presented Keith Koeller and Beckman Coulter Foundation as this year’s Save a Life Honorees, we were moved with declarations from board members and survivors about the importance of research, we danced the night away with Family Style, and most importantly of all – with your help we raised over $250,000 for PCRF!

For 36 years we have thrived against pediatric cancer with the help of our heroes – ordinary people, doing extra ordinary things.  Your gifts will continue to help fund the most promising research in top hospitals across the countryThank you for standing with PCRF and remaining relentless in our mission to not stop until 100% of children are saved!

Keith Koeller

Keith is an active member of our board and has experienced pediatric cancer firsthand with his own son’s cancer journey. Today his son, Greg, is a thriving survivor. His cancer does not define him or hold him back from life’s greatest experiences. He is a reminder of why research works and why funding is necessary for future children – so that they can thrive just like Greg.

Beckman Coulter Foundation

For over 25 years, Beckman Coulter, Inc., the Beckman Coulter Foundation and Beckman Coulter associates have been dedicated to supporting the mission of PCRF.  From funding research grants and lectureships, to creating countless creative Bid for the Kids silent auction baskets, their commitment toward helping find a cure for pediatric cancer has remained constant.
