Each year, Miracle Babies looks forward to hosting its Annual Miracle Babies Gala. However, 2020 will be a bit different. Along with thousands of other organizations, we’re pivoting our event to fit the needs of both the community and our organization. Here’s what this year’s 11th Annual Miracle Babies Gala will look like.
Announcing Our New Phantom Gala Format
Due to COVID-19, Miracle Babies will host a “phantom gala” with no guests, no fancy dinner, and no lengthy program. In fact, you can participate in our gala right from the comfort of your own home on October 31. Now more than ever NICU parents need your support, and we look forward to “hosting” this event and receiving your donations.
Why Participate in Our Phantom Gala?
Our phantom gala is a creative way to continue your support despite logistical challenges. Here’s why you should participate.
- It’s easy. Perhaps dressing up and going to events isn’t for you, or maybe you have a scheduling conflict. Whatever your reason, the phantom gala allows everyone to participate from the comfort of their home. You don’t have to go anywhere, and you don’t have to dress up. Starting next week, our online auction goes live for bidding. Beginning on October 26th, higher-end items like a trip to Cabo will also go up for bidding. Don’t miss out!
- It’s for a great cause. Miracle Babies provides direct and supportive services to parents and families with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Your support can help reunite these families and change health outcomes by reducing the babies’ stress. Many of the families in our communities are currently navigating the complexities of giving birth during a pandemic, and they could use our support now more than ever. You can help give a premature baby the presence of their parent – a cornerstone of their critical care team.
- It’s for double the impact. This year your sponsorship will make double the impact due to the generosity of the Joan T. Waitt Family Fund. They have agreed to match dollar for dollar up to the first $100,000 we raise. We encourage you to be one of our first donors to ensure your donation goes that extra mile.
Thank you for your support! Miracle Babies is so lucky to have donors like you to help serve families in the hospital. Can you help give them a better beginning?
