The Zachary Hebda Foundation board has given considerable consideration regarding the 2022 Zachary Hebda Foundation Gala. We have come to the difficult decision that the Gala slated for October 1, 2022, will be postponed.
The reason for the postponement is the lack of participation that is multifold. Many previous participants have declined due to schedule conflicts or the COVID protocols.
The COVID-19 precautions are based on consultation with Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology. The intent wasn’t to exclude anyone; the restrictions were implemented because we have/would have had an ambassador from Johns Hopkins that is in treatment and doctors/staff from Hopkins that have direct patient contact with multiple patients in treatment. Our hope for the future is that with more time passing there will be new protocols in place to allow for all to have better access for us all to be together again.
We’re going to rethink our model and do something in the spring. Will be in touch with details. We cannot express how much we appreciate your long-term support for the Zachary Hebda Foundation. We have made incredible progress in childhood cancer treatment
Thank you for all your support,
The annual Zachary Hebda Foundation Gala is an elegant dinner evening featuring a silent auction, stories from those helped by our foundation, and time spent with inspiring Foundation benefactors and beneficiaries. It’s a time for all that fight for the end of childhood cancer to gather, celebrating our successes and recommitting to our mission.
