The Gray Gala is National Brain Tumor Society’s premier event of 2018, and serves as an important time to celebrate the critical progress being made in brain tumor research and drug development, to honor leaders in the field and community, and raise much-needed awareness for this cause.

The Gray Gala will take place on Friday, March 23rd at the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center at One Seaport Lane in the historic, thriving city of Boston, Massachusetts.

Guests will be treated to dazzling city and harbor views on the Boston waterfront in the bustling Seaport District. The evening will feature a silent and live auction, live entertainment, cocktails and open bar for a portion of the night, dinner, our Courage Awards, and special guests.

Boston Bruins legendary ice hockey defenseman Raymond Bourque will be our guest auctioneer for a live auction of wonderful trips and prizes. Experience inspirational stories from NFL football great Blaise Winter who overcame adversity as a brain tumor survivor, and Christine Suau of #WhyNotDevin whose son Devin was diagnosed with a DIPG, and became a local celebrity because of his positive, inspiring attitude.

Attendees will include many members of the brain tumor community including patients and care partners as well as leaders, clinicians, doctors, and executives from corporations, universities, healthcare and drug companies, technology organizations, and government.

Proceeds from this event will support the core programs of the National Brain Tumor Society for both adults and children.
