The Gala

THANK YOU for your support! The Gala Goes Grease raised over $356,000 which will make a huge impact for patients and their families affected by cancer through Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center and Cancer Services.

Going Grease may have looked a little different than past events, but it proved to be just as special! People tuned in from all over as we traveled back in time to the 1950s on March 25, 2021 and saw our incredible Prom Court shine! Guests enjoyed 50s classics, unique mission moments, witty dialogue and overall a rockin’ good time! GREASE IS THE WORD!

Meet our 2021 Prom Court!
