The evening’s program will also include a brief presentation of the leadership awards and the Marian Sokol Award for the Advancement of Stillbirth Awareness and Prevention, live entertainment and a formal dinner. Proceeds from the gala will benefit First Candle’s mission of educating families with the latest research for safe pregnancies and healthy babies.
