Dreams Will Come True Thanks to Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) and the DREAM GALA

A long-standing tradition, DREAM, is the Twin Cities’ gala benefiting CCRF. This annual event is beautifully crafted with exciting experiences, inspiring stories, and fabulous food, all for a meaningful cause: to end childhood cancer.

Monumental days happen because of nights like these

Imagine a day with better answers for childhood brain tumors. A day when cancer doesn’t strike the same fear as it does today. A day when we look back and see all the people, funding, and trials that made significant progress possible.

A day like that will take a night like this – DREAM 2023.

This year, the team at CCRF selected Heroic as their trusted production partner. Our collective planning began with the vision in mind: to move and motivate people to give. As staging and audio/visual design experts, we know how we can influence that effort. It begins with designing an immersive experience that surprises and delights the attendees. We applaud the team at CCRF for selecting just the right partners for success. Working alongside our friends at Festivities, we transformed Quincy Hall (already a beautiful venue) into a fitting backdrop for engagement and giving!

Creating magic with CCRF: A night of giving

As always, Heroic’s main focus is ensuring our clients’ key messages are seen, heard, and felt. The stage and overall room were set with large projection screens, ensuring the best visibility for the 400+ seated dinner audience. The program included awards, touching stories and tributes, and the very important live auction.

Following the dinner and program, attendees moved into a secondary area of the venue where they enjoyed a DJ, more activations, and a few late-night bites.

Under the direction and execution of Eric Perkins, Event Host, and Kristine Fladeboe Duininck, Live Auctioneer, we are proud to report the evening raised over $660,000 for childhood brain tumor research.
