The Jessie Rees Foundation™ would like for you to join us at the 2nd annual NEGU Gala. It will be a night to shine for courageous kids fighting cancer.
NEGU, which stands for Never Ever Give Up, was the motto and message of Jessie Rees who was a caring 12 year old girl who courageously fought two inoperable brain tumors for ten months. Jessie lost her fight on January 5, 2012 but left behind a global movement of over 200,000 supporters and a simple wish—”please encourage every kid fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up.” Jessie’s Wish is also the mission of her foundation, which provided encouragement, resources and support to over 40,000 courageous kids in 2012.
This special evening of dining, drinks, dancing, special entertainment and awards, is all about raising awareness and support to continue Jessie’s Wish. There are over 250,000 children fighting cancer today. Everyday 46 more kids are told they have cancer. Every one of these courageous kids and their families need encouragement, hope, joy and love!
It will be a great evening for a great cause! We look forward to shining with you!
