Bid for the Kids Gala

PCRF Bid for the Kids Gala invitation and directionsThe Sky is the Limit Bid for the Kids Gala was a tremendous success thanks to our many sponsors, donors and volunteers! With 250 guests in attendance from all over South Orange County, together we dined, bid and danced among the wings of the rarest vintage aircraft and vehicles in the world on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Lyon Air Museum. Flashback Heart Attack had everyone on the dance floor, ending the night with laughter, smiles, and a night well fundraised for pediatric cancer research.

It was with great pleasure to present Brad Neglia with this year’s Save a Life Award. Brad is a Senior Partner at LBA Realty, a husband, father, an active member of our board and golf planning committee. Above all else Brad has a big heart and has helped raise countless dollars for pediatric cancer research.

Our oncology speaker was the gracious Lana Clay, who shared with us her story of survivorship. From being diagnosed as a toddler with little to no chance of survival, enduring an intensive treatment which left her chest terribly scarred, and yet after 4 long years she miraculously gained remission. Today she is a proud survivor working with organizations all over Orange County to spread awareness and help raise the necessary funds to advance treatments and cure rates. Cancer as a child has led Lana to choosing a path of becoming an Oncology Doctor herself. One day she is going to be on the other side of the diagnosis, and hoping the funds we raise will provide cures for her future patients.

We would like to thank the following Sponsors for your support. We know you have many charities to choose from, and that’s why we are ever grateful that you continue to choose PCRF. In the words of Theo Epstein, “Humans can accomplish more collectively than they can individually. That is why the teamwork of the 2016 Chicago Cubs has paid off and they are the 2016 World Series Champion.” You as a supporter of PCRF are collectively saving lives while supporting our friends and family battling this disease!
