A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes, presented by Delta Air Lines, is a unique and inspiring event created to honor mothers of children diagnosed with cancer and the strength and courage they show as they guide their families through an unimaginable journey. This luncheon, always a sell-out, welcomes 250 mothers each year, some of whom come straight from their child’s hospital bedside, and 350 individuals who come to show their support. All guests are treated to an amazing day of inspiring speakers, musical performances, and an over-the-top silent auction.
While we treat our honored moms to many special surprises, such as touch-ups by professional makeup artists, chair massages, and an incredible gift bag, the biggest gift is what they want most of all – hope for a cure. Through sponsorships, ticket sales, the auction, and raffle, we raise money to advance research into better treatments and cures for childhood cancers. To date, A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes has raised nearly $5.4 million, funding promising research studies that are today saving lives.
