ATLANTA - Get ready to step into a magical world of wonder and excitement at the 2nd Annual Gala of The Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc. (SCFG). With the theme of "A Winter Wonderland, All for You,” this year's event promises to be a night of pure enchantment and joy.
Join us on Saturday, December 2nd, at the exquisite Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel, 4736 Best Road near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, starting with a reception at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available at www.sicklecellga.org/events
This annual event serves as a year in review of SCFG’s successes in the community and throughout the state, celebrates our clients living with sickle cell, and serves as a thank you to our many sponsors, donors, and doctors for their work in the sickle cell community.
This year, be prepared to be entertained by the incredible voice of NBC's The Voice Runner Up, Ms. Jershika Maple, and be inspired by the wisdom of our keynote speaker, the distinguished Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick, President Emeritus of Howard University. Dr. Frederick's extensive career in service to the sickle cell community has yielded valuable research and insights into physician education, effective communication, and physician-patient relationships.
“We are tremendously honored to have Dr. Frederick because he is living with sickle cell disease and Living Well with Sickle Cell,” said SCFG Executive Director Tabatha McGee. “As a bonus, attendees can enter a drawing for one night’s stay at the fabulous Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta and other great prizes.”
This elegant evening will feature a gourmet dinner and live entertainment. All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting research, education, hematology care, and advocacy for sickle cell disease.
Our Gala is a celebration of our achievements in the community and a crucial step in raising awareness about sickle cell disease in Georgia.
Sickle cell disease is a genetic blood disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. The disease is caused by a mutation in the hemoglobin gene, which results in the production of abnormal red blood cells. These abnormal red blood cells can sickle or become crescent-shaped, which can block blood flow and cause pain, organ damage, and other serious health problems.
There is currently no cure for sickle cell disease, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms and improve quality of life. SCFG is committed to finding a cure for sickle cell disease and ensuring that all people affected have access to quality care.
Marking our 52nd year of existence, SCFG advocates for over 14,000 Georgians living with sickle cell. SCFG offers affordable, mobile, and in-person hematology services, sickle cell testing, specialized care coordination, educational opportunities, and food assistance. SCFG also hosts Camp New Hope, Georgia’s first and most popular medically supervised summer camp.
