The Greatest Gateway Gala 2018

The Greatest Gateway Gala 2018

Thanks to our generous donors, sponsors, attendees and volunteers; the Greatest Gateway Gala raised $4.1 million for cancer research!

On Saturday, October 20, more than 700 donors gathered together to raise funds for meaningful and breakthrough clinical trials worldwide that help people living with cancer to feel better, live longer and conquer cancer TODAY!

Thanks to all our donors like you, we have been able to give Peighton Bailey, a 13 year-old brain tumor clinical trial patient, hope for her future and many others like her a fighting chance.

Your donation will continue to fund innovative clinical trials focused on personalized medicine, new drug discoveries, repurposing of FDA approved drugs and integrative therapies. Thanks to generous underwriting by Cancer Treatment Centers of America®, 99 cents of every dollar Gateway receives directly funds Phase I and Phase II cancer clinical trials at leading research institutions across the country and abroad.
