The 10th Annual Lime Light Gala will celebrate stories of hope and remember those who have been lost at Vie By Cescaphe (600 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA) on Friday, March 20, 2020 beginning at 7 p.m. The black-tie optional event will include a five-star silent auction, gourmet dinner, a special live performance, and the aforementioned award presentation followed by an evening of dancing to the music of world-class entertainers, Masquerade. The event is held annually to honor the life and legacy of HEADstrong founder Nicholas Colleluori, who succumbed to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2006 at the age of 21; before he passed, Colleluori’s dying wish was that others would learn and benefit from his story.

“Toasting “10” keeping Nick’s vision alive as we build community to support the fighters, applaud the survivors, remember the taken and never ever give up hope.” remarked Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President & Nick’s Mom.

Proceeds from the Lime Light Gala will allow the HEADstrong Foundation to continue its core services including financial, residential, and emotional support to patients and families affected by cancer.

Tickets are $275 each with special pricing for tables of 10. CLICK HERE for event details and to purchase tickets. Tickets are subject to limited availability.

Co-Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Gala will be Thomas Drayton and Karen Hemp of Good Day Philadelphia on Fox 29. The duo each have their significant ties to the area as both Thomas and Karen grew up in South Jersey.  The Good Day Philadelphia co-anchors have acquired several accolades for their reporting over the years and have made stops at notable stations including Fox 5 New York and Fox News International.
