A look back at the 2018 Gala...
The 2018” ALL STAR GALA” Was Fun; Celebrating Child Grief Awareness
On Saturday, November 10th, 2018; It was an honor to present our Hope Strength and Healing Awards to Elizabeth Cassinari, Dr. Michael Kachmann, Bre Woltermann, our Circle of Hope Award to Russell J. Pennavaria, and our Companions of Hope Awards Archbishop Moeller High School Lakota Schools MindPeace New York Life Foundation ProLink Staffing.
The 103.5 WGRR “Married with Microphones” morning team of Chris O’Brien and Janeen Coyle have been married for 32 years, and have worked together in some capacity for longer than that! This is there second time hosting the All Star Gala, however much has changed in the past six years.
The evening began with Silent Auctions, Raffles, ring toss, and cocktails, followed by an elegant dinner of filet or salmon. The award presentations took place after dinner ending with music and dancing provided by “The Remains” band. Everyone in attendance had a fabulous time!
The “All Star Gala” could not have been a success without the help of many individuals and sponsors.
We want to publicly thank those who support us in our mission to provide hope for the bereaved in our community. Thank you volunteers and sponsors; It is sometime said “It takes a village”
