This special evening honors professionals and volunteers in our community while raising critical funds for our mission: To cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and improve the quality of life of children and adults living with these diseases.


The evening will feature a cocktail reception, silent auction packages, games, live music, evening dinner program, live auction and champion awards followed by an after-party with dancing. In addition, IBD patients will share their compelling testimonials as our champion speakers, offering perspective and inspiration for our audience.


The Foundation's annual leadership awards are presented to a Community Champion, Volunteer Champion and Medical Champion. These individuals and companies have assisted the Foundation in making great strides in advancing our mission to cure IBD and increase the quality of life of people living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
