Purple Pansies 10th Annual Gala will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2019, at the Freemanville Estate in Milton, Georgia, to benefit pancreatic cancer research.
We are honored to have Kroger as our title partner this year.
Major sponsorship provided Freemanville Estate, The Littrell Family, Associated Printing, and Casa Nuova.
Our goal is to raise $500,000.
The event kicks off with a cocktail hour from 5-6 p.m., cocktail attire, and then includes a wonderful multi course dinner, including wine pairings, an open bar all evening, and a silent and live auction. The dinner is prepared by Chef Antonio Fundora of Casa Nuova Italian Restaurant located in Alpharetta.
We are blessed to have 3 honorary chairs that are all pancreatic cancer survivors.
Howard Young, a 17-year survivor, Elizabeth O’Connor a 9 year survivor, and Teona Ducre a 3 year survivor.
Purple Pansies was founded by Maria Fundora who lost her loving mother to pancreatic cancer.
This year Purple Pansies, Inc. continues its support of Translational Genomics Research Institute, TGen, a non-profit 501(c)3 medical research organization. Purple Pansies is one of several local organizations supporting The Final Assault, a TGen pancreatic cancer clinical trial.
