KIDSgala began in 2013 with the following mission, “A foundation created in the memory of Nicole Marie Burton, to provide a gifted celebration to children who have or are battling a life altering event. KIDSgala is dedicated to hosting events that will individually celebrate each child’s life achievements…”

The child should be between the ages of 3 – 17 at the time of the celebration.
The child must have or is battling a life altering event.
Written approval from primary care physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant that clears child to attend event.

Must be accompanied to the event by parent, legal guardian and/or social worker.
Provide own transportation to and from celebration event.
