Over two years in the making, the 40th Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer (WOKC) Celebration Gala raised a record-breaking $2 million, including $1 million from honorary chair Peter Cancro, the founder and CEO of Jersey Mike’s Subs.

Jackie Thornton and Jenice Dunayer co-chaired the event on April 30 at the Arts District Mansion. Guests included WOKC Warriors, their parents, supporters, sponsors, and underwriters.

The gala featured presentations, a live auction, and an acoustic performance of Billy Dawson’s new song, Gold Ribbon, created with Rodney Clawson specifically for the gala.
