STAR-94’s Jenn Hobby welcomed 475 guests to the “A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes” luncheon in May at Flourish in Buckhead benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer.
The event honored 250 mothers of children diagnosed with, lost to or surviving cancer who have demonstrated strength and courage as they guide their families through the health care crisis. Along with a silent auction and entertainment by musician Steve Fee, the hero moms participated in a raffle that gave five of them delivered, gourmet meals from Instead of Flowers. All moms took home gifts donated from Erin Gray Design, InspireDesigns Jewelry, Pura Vida and more. Supported by presenting sponsor Delta Airlines and media sponsor Simply Buckhead, ticket sales, sponsorships and the silent auction raised nearly $375,000 earmarked for research into childhood cancers.
