CURE Childhood Cancer’s inspiring annual luncheon, A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes, recognizes the mothers of children fighting cancer.
More than 550 attendees gathered at the InterContinental Buckhead to honor these women who pour their support and love into their little fighters without hesitation. In addition to a catered lunch and silent auction, honorees enjoyed pampering treatments courtesy of Authentic Beauty and a live performance by musician Stevie Fee. This was the eleventh year CURE hosted the event, which was originally conceived by Chris Glavine, wife of MLB Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Glavine. This year’s keynote speaker was Amber Larkin, president and executive creative director of Nth Degree Design & Visual FX and founder and president of the nonprofit Noah’s Light Foundation, which has partnered with CURE to fund pediatric brain cancer research. Taking place during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, this event helps fund pediatric cancer research. This year, CURE raised $360,000. – Jessica Wise[nggallery id=30]
