Looking Back at the 2022 Thanksgiving Ball Gala

Posted by The Valerie Fund on 11/21/22 3:00 PM

The Valerie Fund 31st Annual Thanksgiving Ball Gala was held November 18th at The Grove 

VF Thanks Ball Inv 2022

 in Cedar Grove, NJ. The evening showcased the talent of our Valerie Fund kids, with a beautiful musical performance given by River. Abigaël did an amazing job as MC, and gave a moving speech sharing her Valerie Fund journey.

The Valerie Fund was proud to honor The New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers and New Jersey's Franchised New Car and Truck Retailers and Team Stoma, Midlige & Brown. for their extensive efforts on behalf of the families of The Valerie Fund. We are grateful for their support and proud to call them Valerie Fund partners.




We raised over $1,100,000 at the event. This money will be used to fund all Valerie Fund programs across the eight Valerie Fund Children’s Centers throughout New Jersey, New York City, Long Island, and metro Philadelphia. This will be the first year we are providing The Valerie Fund services and support to Long Island families and we couldn’t do this without your support. We look forward to our official launching of The Children’s Center at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital on Long Island.

Thank you to all our supporters for helping us meet The Valerie Fund's mission of delivering integrated psychosocial and medical care.
