As Scott Stackman, Gala Founder and Chairman “it’s not about finish lines or medals, it’s about the important lessons acquired through sports and activity that affect all aspects of life.”
On June 6th, 2018, nearly 800 people gathered at the New York Hilton Midtown to honor Michael and Connie Casey and to celebrate extraordinary athletes like Jack Cunningham and Patty Collins who truly embody what it is to be a hero, have heart, and to give hope. Together we raised 2.7 million dollars giving thousands of individuals with physical challenges access to sports and an active lifestyle and beyond. NBC News Meteorologist Dylan Dryer hosted the evening and we enjoyed a surprise appearance from NFL Rookie Shaquem Griffin who came to us live from the Seahawks practice fields to encourage us to believe in ourselves. We also honored the Howard and Gail Stackman Heroes, Heart and Hope Legacy Award winner, David and Allison Blitzer.
