KiDS NEED M♥RE announces 3rd Annual Mitchell Kraeling Memorial Gala
A Mardi Gras Style Gala Planned for Families Coping with Cancer
KiDS NEED MoRE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of children, families, and young adults coping with cancer and life threatening illnesses, is proud to announce the 3rd Annual KNM Mitchell Kraeling Memorial Gala honoring Joseph Hoehn, will take place at The Coral House in Baldwin on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019.
This year’s Mardi Gras style and family friendly Gala promises dinner, dancing, raffles and prizes, as well the exceptional children and teen Gala Ambassadors. This year’s ambassadors include children coping with cancer, whether they have lost a sibling to the disease or have endured it themselves. These special individuals represent hope for the KiDS and families coping with cancer and life-threatening illness. Each ambassador has taken on the task of personally fundraising for the event. A grand prize will be awarded to the ambassador who raises the most.
All proceeds from the Gala will support the KiDS NEED MoRE mission to enhance the lives of children, families and young adults coping with cancer and life-threatening illness.
The Coral House in Baldwin will host this year’s Mitch Kraeling Gala for the benefit of KiDS NEED MoRE. Last year’s event saw upwards of 200 attendees and raised close to $40,000 for the charity.
This year’s top prizes include autographed memorabilia from Yankee star Derek Jeter, Houston Rocket’s Chris Paul, and Raider’s Charles Wilson, as well as 4 tickets to a Knicks or 76ers game.
“We are really looking forward to this year’s event,” notes Melissa Firmes, president of KiDS NEED MoRE. “At KiDS NEED MoRE we believe that children diagnosed with serious illness need more than to survive, they deserve to thrive. We are committed to providing them opportunities with their families to enjoy life, to have fun and create happy memories.”
