A Million Dreams Gala for GOSH will be held on Saturday 15th December 2018 at St Julians Club in Sevenoaks.
The aim of the evening is for guests to have a wonderful time, whilst raising funds to help GOSH continue their vital work. Guests will enjoy a sparkling reception, a three course dinner and entertainment and dancing themed on the incredibly successful film, The Greatest Showman.
We are fundraising for GOSH in memory of our daughter, Lexi, who devastatingly died in December 2017 from sepsis. GOSH have setup a fund in Lexi’s name to hold money raised in her memory to target specific equipment, research and facilities in her name.
A Million Dreams Gala for GOSH is being hosted on her birthday, to celebrate all that she has inspired since her death. We are currently fundraising for the Alligator ward. Alligator Ward is one of GOSH’s Cardiac Intensive Care and High Dependency Units for children and young people needing close monitoring and nursing care due to their heart conditions.
