The second annual Believe Ball, held at The St. Regis in Buckhead, honored retired 11Alive News anchor Jill Becker, who has served as a tireless advocate for children with cancer. More than 630 guests gathered to honor Becker and celebrate the work of CURE Childhood Cancer, a nonprofit cancer research foundation dedicated to finding cures for childhood cancer. Sold out in just a few weeks, the black-tie gala was chaired by Sylvia and Pat Tylka and Christine and Tom Glavine. The elegant evening included a cocktail reception, silent auction and seated dinner as well as an awards presentation, live auction and dancing. Donna and Jack Kennedy served as the presenting sponsor for the second year in a row. Other sponsors included AutoNation, Delta Air Lines, Christine and Tom Glavine, Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead and The Tylka Family. The Believe Ball raised $890,000 to further CURE’s mission, topping its 2014 figure of $750,000.
