Event History

For three years, over 200 children treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) and their family members were touched by the fundraising efforts of 12-year-old Ciara Chanell Howard. The former Brooklyn Nets kid dancer and Jordan Brand Ambassador, made tremendous strides in her community raising funds, collecting prom attire and registering potential bone marrow donors.

Ciara’s desire to donate her dresses to kids with cancer has manifested into a highly anticipated annual gala and fundraiser. Ciara’s star studded event honorees include Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still’s daughter, Leah Still, who was honored for her preservation during her fight against cancer, Carmelo Anthony’s wife LALA Anthony, EGL P.U.D Founder Yandy Harris Smith, Power 105.1 personality Angela Yee and Nickelodeon “Little Ballers” producer William Council to name a few. Ciara has also provided children affected by the disease with awards, gifts, bikes and the opportunity to walk the runway in honor of spreading awareness and building their self-esteem.
