Glitter Gala

November 3, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm PDT


On our daughter Jennifer’s 6th birthday she was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). A highly aggressive brain tumor that currently has a 0% cure rate – it is terminal upon diagnosis. Less than four months later our first baby took her last breath in our arms.

Jennifer’s tumors were donated to Dr. Michelle Monje of Stanford/Lucille Packard and cell lines have been created from them. That means she is still fighting…not the way we wanted her to, but she is still fighting and she needs our help.

Join the fight to find a cure at our 2nd Annual Glitter Gala

5 PM – 10 PM
City Hall Rotunda | San Jose, CA
Tickets $250

An evening filled with a delectable strolling dinner, delicious specialty cocktails, sweet treats, and exciting live auction, entertainment and dancing!

Join us and hear from Dr. Monje herself all the exciting details about the progress that her research has made thanks to your support.

  • 2 tickets to the Gala

  • Your name listed in our annual report
  • Commemorative Glitter Guard pin
  • 2 tickets to another “Unravel presents . . .” event
  • Opportunity to designate your recognition in honor or memory of a loved one

Additional sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Every dollar raised at the Glitter Gala – tickets and sponsorships, auction and fund the need – will be matched up to $250,000 so your support goes twice as far!
