“I know from experience that ‘most wonderful time of year’ is incredibly hard for families fighting childhood cancer, and tickets to the dinner say ‘we’re thinking of you’ during the Christmas season,” said Kristie Williams, who founded Team Victory 4 All after her son, Eli, was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Team Victory 4 All is a North Alabama nonprofit that supports local families fighting childhood cancer and various research institutions searching for a cure.
