About The Jillian Fund
The Jillian Fund will be hosting its third annual gala this year on November 2nd, 2016 at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey.
The Jillian Fund was founded in July 2013 by a group of inspired and caring individuals who set forth to fulfill a simple wish: to help families in need. The inspiration comes directly from Jillian, who leading by example, reached out and gave strength and encouragement to young children and teenagers in need. Last year at our second Gala, we raised over $200,000 and since has exceeded $400,000 in donations, assisting more than 45 families.
The main objective of the fund is to provide financial support to families with children who are suffering from life threatening illnesses and require critical care. There are many financial burdens placed upon families in these situations, including medical bills, travel costs for treatments and time away from work. Our goal is to allow family members the opportunity to be by their child’s side and focus on their needs, and our financial support helps to make this possible.
This year, we will be honoring Dr. Alfred P. Gillio, MD. Dr. Gillio has been instrumental in the fight against pediatric cancer and continues to dedicate his life to his craft.
