Winship’s second gala was held April 14 at the Piedmont Driving Club, and it raised more than $600,000 for research programs at Winship. It was an elegant evening of dinner, dancing, and celebrating achievements in the fight against cancer. With HOPE as its theme, the signature event, organized by Friends of Winship, sold out at the patron level.

Gala co-chairs and Friends founding members Ann Hastings and Leslie Wierman and their dedicated committee did an outstanding job organizing this event, which recognized Mary and John F. Brock, CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc., as honorary chairs.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the Winship Gala 2012 a tremendous success!
