The event is aimed at raising awareness of sickle cell disease, in commemoration of World Sickle Cell Day, which takes place on June 19th every year.

The Shak’s Hope Foundation’s primary mission is to raise awareness about sickle cell disease, a genetic blood disorder that affects millions of people around the world. The foundation is committed to providing education and resources to the community, as well as advocating for research and treatments to improve the lives of those living with the disease.

The fundraising gala is the foundation’s biggest event of the year, and organizers are expecting a great turnout. Attendees will be treated to a delicious dinner, live entertainment by DJ Radcliffe, and a silent auction with a variety of items and experiences up for bid. All proceeds from the event will go directly to supporting the foundation’s mission of raising awareness about sickle cell disease, including repairs of medical devices that are vital to the patients they support.
