Diamonds Over Georgia 2016 (Rescheduled Date)

A Charity for Conquering Childhood Cancer


On February 19th, 2016, the tenth annual charitable event known as Diamonds Over Georgia will be held at Park Tavern's Piedmont Room to benefit The Four Diamonds Fund and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, two organizations which provide medical, financial, and emotional support to families facing childhood cancer and other serious illnesses. The gala will raise awareness about these causes and will feature a silent auction in order to raise funds.

Diamonds Over Georgia was founded by the Atlanta Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association in 2006 in honor of Penn State’s annual Dance Marathon (THON). THON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, has raised an incredible $127 million for The Four Diamonds Fund since its inception in 1977. To show our support for similar initiatives in the Atlanta area, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

The mission of The Four Diamonds Fund is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.  The Fund offsets the cost of treatment that insurance does not cover, as well as expenses that may disrupt the welfare of the child, such as car repairs, rent, or household utilities. The Fund also supports the medical team that cares for the children and subsidizes pediatric cancer research through start-up grants and the Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Institute.  For more information on this amazing organization, please visit www.fourdiamonds.org.

 

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a not-for-profit organization, is one of the largest clinical care providers for children in the country. Their mission is to enhance the lives of children through excellence in patient care, research and education. Children’s offers access to more than 30 pediatric specialties and is ranked among the top children’s hospitals by Parents magazine and U.S. News & World Report. With generous philanthropic and volunteer support, Children’s has made an impact in the lives of children in Georgia, the United States and throughout the world. For more information on Children’s services and accomplishments, please visit www.choa.org.

 

The gala will include passed hors d'oeuvres, a buffet dinner and an open bar.  We can't wait for you to join us in a fun-filled evening in pursuit of defeating pediatric cancer.
