The inaugural Gold Gala benefiting Layla’s Legacy was a huge success! Set across from the beautiful Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, the majestic Dallas skyline was a beautiful backdrop for a magical evening honoring Layla and the legacy we’re continuing in her memory. We were honored to have Fox 4 Sportscaster Mike Doocy as our celebrity emcee for the evening. We can’t wait to do it again in 2019 “Under The Big Top!”
Inaugural Gold Gala
In October 2016, the Stamp family was devastated by the news that their 4-year-old daughter, Layla, had a form of pediatric brain cancer called Medulloblastoma. Even after surgery, months of chemotherapy and radiation, Layla’s cancer returned. For 14 months the family fought and tried every possible treatment available only to lose Layla on November 11, 2017, shortly after her 5th birthday.
During their journey, the Stamps learned just how little funding there was for pediatric cancers and also how difficult it can be for families financially. Layla’s Legacy was founded to create change in research, to be advocates of the disease and to help support families by offsetting costs where needed. In their mind, it was time to Do More for our kids!
