Fuel the Cure’s 2014 Winter Gala
Young, philanthropy-minded professionals gathered to support KIPP Philadelphia, Vetri Foundation and the Mann Center.
The charity was founded by Mirza Cavalic, whose father died of leukemia when he was 11. After graduating from college in 2004, he wanted to find a way to raise money for those suffering from the disease so he recruited a few like-minded Dickinson alums to help out. They formed a committee for Fuel the Cure to encourage young professionals to be more philanthropic.
Since that first gala, they’ve changed the mission a little bit to include other charities that would benefit from their efforts. In the beginning, the money raised would go to the leukemia foundation, but now the proceeds are shared with different charities. Proceeds from this year’s gala will go to KIPP Philadelphia, Vetri Foundation, and The Mann Center.
