The second annual Denim and Diamonds event to raise funds for the Glenn Garcelon Foundation was held on Saturday, March 7, at Robson Ranch Hermosa Ballroom in Eloy, AZ.

Almost 200 guests enjoyed a fun evening of live music by NFocus, playing many of our favorites. We also had 23 raffle baskets and 25 silent auction items. There was a pasta buffet and delicious cupcakes donated by Chele’s Cakes and Cupcakes (a local business). We decorated the ballroom with dedication centerpieces for all the brain tumor warriors in our lives, with lots of glitter, diamonds, and lights to shine bright in the night.

Thank you to those who attended, to those who donated money or items for our raffle or auction, and to our sponsors. We did not have final numbers before publication deadline for the April issue, but we estimate that we raised more than $10,000 this year.

You don’t want to miss this event next year in March 2021- just ask anyone who attended this year. To learn more about this Foundation and how we work to empower and support brain tumor patients and their families, check out https://www.glenngarcelonfoundation.org/.
