Whitley's Sweet 16 Gala
April 14, 2018 5:30PM
Edwardsville Moose Lodge
7371 Marine Rd. Edwardsville, IL
to celebrate what would have been Whitley's 16th birthday!
Join us for a fun filled night with live music, delicious food from area restaurants, silent auction, raffles, door prizes and more!
Our fundraising goals for this event are twofold. Half of the proceeds will be used to create a scholarship in Whitley’s memory to be awarded to one of her classmates in the year 2020, the year she would have graduated. The scholarship will be awarded based on the student’s past volunteer work and his or her plans for future philanthropic endeavors.
The remaining proceeds will be donated to the DIPG Collaborative for research. DIPG is the deadliest of all pediatric cancers having less than a 1% survival rate. It is swift and brutal. There have been no advancements in treatment for this disease in more that 50 years. Many doctors believe that a cure for DIPG will result in a cure for all cancers, pediatric and adult alike. Please join us in our efforts to give hope to families facing this monster.
