Since 2013, KIDSgala has been providing celebrations of life to children who have or are currently battling a life altering event, focusing on the individuality of each child’s life achievements.
KEY SERVICES PROVIDED
KIDSgala, a David C. McKnight Foundation, was created in memory of Nicole Marie Burton, who courageously fought and lost her battle with leukemia on November 8th 2013 at the young age of 9. The foundation hosts “celebrations of life” uniquely tailored to give each participating child – along with their family and friends, who are also challenged daily with these life-altering events – hope, courage, and happiness. Each child’s life achievements are celebrated in a memorable and inspiring way. The celebrations for each child are funded by an annual White Party, their largest fundraiser, which helps raise awareness and bring to the forefront the daily challenges these children face. Children who have or are currently battling a life-altering event can be nominated on the KIDSgala website.
