About the Gala

This is a night you don't want to miss! The ASK Above & Beyond Gala is our community's biggest night to help make life better for children with cancer. Watch the recap from last year's record-breaking, out-of-this-world gala below:

  • Silent & live auctions
  • Interactive games
  • Seated dinner
  • Open bar & specialty drinks

  • Tables are organized by big-hearted individuals who serve as Table Captains. Each Table Captain works to fill his/her table by purchasing the table or organizing guests who will purchase their own seats.

  • As a Table Captain, you help to ensure the gala is well attended by guests interested in supporting ASK's mission. To show our appreciation, Table Captains are invited to the VIP cocktail reception prior to the event as well as listed in the program and on the event website.

About ASK

With 1-2 childhood cancer diagnoses per week in Central Virginia, the numbers add up quickly for families that need emotional, financial and educational care as they navigate the complex and stressful issues of cancer treatment.

Your support will enable ASK to be there to provide families with something as big as financial assistance to pay their rent this month, or something as little as a snack, a toy, or a shoulder to cry on. All proceeds raised by ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation directly impact the lives of children with cancer and their families.
