Julie B. Foundation Gala At Wanderers Club Sept. 23

The Julie B. Foundation (JBF) will host its 2023 gala on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wanderers Club in Wellington. The night will be filled with inspirational messages from keynote speakers, a gift raffle, a gift auction and a delicious, full-course dinner provided by the Wanderers Club. A cash bar will be available.

All proceeds from the gala will go toward the Julie B. Foundation “Gift a Warrior Project” and scholarship fund. Donation tickets are $100. Purchase tickets at www.thejuliebfoundation.org/events.

JBF was founded by Jaelyn Brown in honor of her mother, Juliet Brown, who passed away in April 2020 from metastasized sarcoma cancer. Sarcoma cancers arise in the connective tissues. They make up approximately one percent of all adult cancer cases. The foundation’s mission is to bring awareness to sarcoma cancers via community education and engagement.

“We aim to connect with battling cancer warriors and their families through support groups, expense assistance, personalized care packages and scholarships for their children,” Brown said. “The vision is to decrease the number of individuals and families that are burdened by the negative socioeconomic impacts of cancer.”

The 2023 gala aims to raise $10,000 for the foundation’s community initiatives. Sponsorships are still available. Gifts are tax-deductible. For more info., e-mail officer@thejuliebfoundation.org.
