2nd Annual Believe Ball says
Recognized as one of the city’s premier social and philanthropic events last year, the inaugural Believe Ball made a name for itself in the Atlanta community. Selling out in a few short weeks, six hundred community and corporate elite gathered to honor 2014 Major League Baseball Hall of Fame inductee and long-time CURE Childhood Cancer supporter, Tom Glavine and his wife, Chris. The elegant black-tie evening featured a fabulous cocktail reception and silent auction followed by dinner, an awards presentation, live auction and dancing. In its inaugural year, the Believe Ball raised $750,000 to further CURE’s mission.

May 16, 2015 marks the 2nd Annual Believe Ball, at the St. Regis Atlanta. We will honor award-winning, retired 11Alive news anchor, Jill Becker, for her tireless dedication to furthering CURE’s mission of curing pediatric cancer in our lifetime. Jill’s son, Matt, was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma at the age of 3. While her family’s story has a happy ending – Matt is a healthy adult, living life to the fullest – his diagnosis inspired Jill to commit her life to helping find a cure for pediatric cancer. From speaking on behalf of CURE to serving on the Board of Directors, Jill’s support is never-ending.

100% of event proceeds benefit CURE's mission to find a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime.
