Thu April 6, 2023 The Gala 417
Virginia Beach, VA 23451 US



Join us for appetizers, a raffle, and drinks to support our friend, mother, wife, colleague, and teacher, Monica Dodd. This event will take place at The Gala 417 in Virginia Beach at 5pm.  It is kid friendly and if possible, please wear blue; it is the color for Mesothelioma Awareness.   Anyone under the age of 7 does not need a ticket.  All profits made from ticket sales for the event, 100% of raffle ticket sales (this will happen at the event- bring cash if possible) , and 15% of alcohol sales will go directly back to the Dodd family.  If you cannot make the event, please consider donating to help this family we love so much.  

Monica was diagnosed with Peritoneal Mesothelioma in July of 2022.  Since then, she has undergone many rounds of chemotherapy, has had many liters of fluid drained from her abdomen, and on January 18 she completed a lengthy and complicated HIPEC surgery.  Monica is a fighter, and this benefit will be to raise money for her and her family during this incredibly difficult time.
