6th Annual Live It Up!

Come celebrate our nonprofit’s 35th anniversary with great food, an open bar, vibrant auction, our sought-after Wine Pull, and our signature Help Hope Live Awards. To tie in with our 35th anniversary Bubble Break campaign, the theme of the evening is Bubbles & Baubles.

All proceeds from our signature fundraising event benefit our work and mission to support community-based fundraising for people with unmet medical and related expenses due to cell and organ transplants or catastrophic injuries and illnesses. Since 1983, we’ve helped unite thousands of communities to raise more than $131 million to cover the unmet medical needs of over 9,000 patients and families in medical crisis.
