Date Night for a Cause

March 31, 2017
Belly Up Tavern  •  5:00pm – 8:00pm


On March 31st, 2017, the North Coast Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary will host Date Night for a Cause, Take 6 at the Belly Up Tavern. This event is a great opportunity for all to get together with friends and enjoy an evening out with live music, good food and great company. Guests will have opportunities to bid on fantastic LIVE auction items as well as opportunity drawings…all this while making a difference in a sick child’s life.

100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary Endowment for Neuroscience. Genetics and genomics are at the core of modern life sciences. With the growing knowledge of the human genome and the technology to decode our DNA, we have entered into a new era of medicine. The goal is to make it possible to diagnose, treat, prevent and cure neurological diseases. The best way to do this is to build the infrastructure that will make it possible to sequence the genome of every child who is treated at Rady Children’s, thereby increasing the ability to diagnose diseases and develop treatments that improve and save children’s lives.

The Auxiliary has pledged to raise money to establish the endowment and support Dr. Joseph Gleeson, the endowed chair. Dr. Gleeson and his team of researchers and clinicians will improve patient care by providing clinical genetics, DNA sequencing, bioinformatics, clinical trials and cutting-edge research for children with neurological diseases and disorders.
