We invite you to join us for this special event to support critical pediatric brain tumor research. This inspirational evening will feature dining and cocktails, exciting auctions, special recognitions, and more. 

Proceeds from the 2015 Bella Notte event will help fund a clinical trial to develop personalized therapies for pediatric high-grade glioma patients. The multi-center trial will utilize molecular profiling of the tumor to identify targeted drugs that may be more effective for the patient. This effort is part of Project Impact, the National Brain Tumor Society's new initiative to address the barriers that are slowing drug development for pediatric brain tumors. Together, we have a real opportunity to make a difference for children with a devastating diagnosis.

Children’s National Health System has provided hope to sick children and their families regionally, nationally, and internationally, for 140 years. Last year alone Children’s National treated more than 370,000 children. The Brain Tumor Institute at Children’s National seeks to care for and cure children diagnosed with brain tumors, and many of the pediatric brain tumor therapies used around the world today were pioneered by Children’s National.

National Brain Tumor Society is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the brain tumor community in the United States. We are fiercely committed to finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for people living with a brain tumor today and those who will be diagnosed tomorrow.
