Grant’s Gala is one of many fundraisers held across the country for The Children’s Heart Foundation. Grant’s Gala was created in memory of Grant Goughnour, who passed away from an undiagnosed congenital heart defect at the age of 17 days. We hope that you will be able to donate or attend this year’s event. If you are not sure if you should purchase a ticket, here is this year’s Top 10 list.
10.) It’s a celebration AND fundraiser, so the net proceeds are going to fund life-saving research and helps us to celebrate Grant’s life.
9.) Make your facebook friends jealous by how great you look while having a fun time
8.) Social Scene – For first timers, you get to meet new and important people. For return attendees, another chance to hang out with the most generous people you know.
7.) When “what did you do this weekend?” comes up at work on Monday morning, you will actually have a much better response than you fell asleep on the couch before Saturday Night Live came on!
6.) There are many cool items to bid on in the Silent Auction-for those of you competitive spirits out there!
5.) Food, local/regional beer, wine, and dancing to live music for $75-please, you can’t find a better deal than that!
4.) There will be dessert. Who doesn’t like dessert?
3.) Almost Famous has been commissioned to create a performance especially for this event. I don’t even know what they are doing, but I checked out their credentials on their website (www.almostfamousmemphis.com/) and they are awesome! This is not-to-be-missed!
2.) Because you are supporting a fantastic cause-The Children’s Heart Foundation, duh!
1.) YOU! You are the reason for our success. It won’t be a party without you. We want you to celebrate with us!
Tickets to Grant’s Gala 2014 are currently $100 per person. Ticket price includes food, beer, wine and entertainment. Tickets will be held at the door.
If you are unable to attend this year’s event, please make a donation. Your donations help us fund the most promising CHD research that will advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects. We appreciate your support.
