For the past 22 years, Nurses for Newborns has been honored to host our annual gala raising funds for the health and well being of infants, babies and families in our community.  While we look forward to returning to a traditional dinner auction celebration, NFN is excited to convene our enduring supporters and new friends with our first-ever virtual gala.  The virtual gala will provide attendees with a dynamic program highlighting NFN's impact and our newest phase of growth.  This year we will still have our signature silent auction, Tiffany and Purse raffles, and a bourbon pull all from the comfort of your own home.
