4th Annual Champions for Change Gala

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm

The Champions for Change Gala is the marquee event for The ChadTough Foundation, raising over $1 million each year. It is an exceptional evening honoring DIPG angels and raising awareness and funds for pediatric brain cancer research. The event includes a Sponsor Pregame Party, Welcome Reception, Dinner Program, and Postgame Party. Guests enjoy mingling with past and present athletes and coaches, DIPG researchers, as well as other local celebrities. The online auction, live auction, and unique “ball toss” are always highlights of the evening.
This year’s event is being co-chaired by former Detroit Tigers All-Star Brandon Inge and his wife, Shani (Chad’s godmother), along with NCBWA National Baseball Coach of the Year Erik Bakich and his wife, Jiffy. Former NFL placekicker and current CBS Sports analyst Jay Feely will emcee the evening.
