Duke Children’s Gala – Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center

The Duke Children’s Gala on Saturday, October 22, 2016 was a wonderful success! Over 350 guests helped us celebrate the amazing work of Duke Children’s. With their support and the support of our many sponsors, we raised over $130,000 for Duke Children’s through the live appeal and auction items alone.

Hosts Ann Reed, MD, chair of the Department of Pediatrics, and Allan Kirk, MD, PhD, chair of the Department of Surgery, highlighted the important work being done at Duke Children’s and the tremendous impact funds raised at the last Gala had on Duke Children’s. President and CEO of Duke University Hospital, Kevin Sowers, emceed the program interweaving patient stories, auction items, and a live appeal.
