The Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance’s Mid Summer Night Gala raises awareness and support
Event: The Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance’s Mid Summer Night gala, held Sunday, July 15, at Brackett’s Crossing Country Club in Lakeville.
Cause: More than $75,000 was raised for ovarian-cancer research and programs to support women and families impacted by the disease.
The Color of Hope: Teal is the color of ovarian-cancer awareness, and was everywhere at the gala, from the drinks to the gifts: teal shoelaces.
Going Once, Going Twice: More than 200 auction items were up for grabs. The largest bid of $6,500 went to an 18-person suite for a Minnesota Wild hockey game.
Hitting the Links: The fun continued the next day when 200 golfers took over Brackett’s for the the Molly Cade Scramble, which also benefitted MOCA research.
