Periwinkle Gala: “Back to the ‘80s!”


Take a trip back to the 1980s with The Periwinkle Foundation’s biennial gala, “Back to the ‘80s!” on Saturday, April 20 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel as hundreds of people gather to raise money for children with cancer and their families. There will be fun, food, beverages and friendship as part of the fundraiser to further Periwinkle camps, art and survivor programs. 

Post-dinner music will be provided by DJ Apollo Beats Music, with lots of ‘80s tunes in the mix. No stuffy gala here; guests can be creative in attire with 1980s fashion described as “the years of puffed shoulders and power suits, flashy skirts and spandex leggings, velour, leg warmers and voluminous parachute pants.” And don’t forget, “big hair.” 

This year’s Gala honorees are John Clutterbuck and Sean Beck, who will be presented with the Gerson Award, which is named after The Periwinkle Foundation founder Paul Gerson, M.D., and given to individuals who donate their time and talents to turn dreams into reality for Periwinkle children.

Saturday, April 20, 2024, 6:30 pm to 11:00 pm
