Noodles for Neuroblastoma

Hosting a Noodles for Neuroblastoma spaghetti dinner is an easy and fun way to gather your community together in support of pediatric cancer research. Almost everyone loves spaghetti and you can tailor your event to the unique style of your town. Selling tickets will be the primary fundraiser- but there are many opportunities to generate additional donations by offering silent auction items, raffles, 50/50’s and even donation jars. Your first task will be finding a good location to host your dinner and we’ve included a few suggestions in case you need a little inspiration.


Our tool kit will help you plan and prepare for your dinner. Now time to tap a few friends to help you out by chairing the following committees:


  • Publicity/Invitations/Ticket Sales
  • Procurement (food, supplies, raffles/silent auction items)
  • Food Preparation(your chef’s at large)
  • Volunteers (setup, ticket sales, auction/raffle and cleanup)
  • Entertainment



























The 4th annual Play Like a Pro Charity Hockey Game at Madison Square Garden in memory of Talia Castellano took place on February 9, 2017.  The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), in partnership with the Band of Parents and the Garden of Dreams Foundation brought together the private equity world and their service providers for an amazing hockey experience and the opportunity to benefit two great causes.


Through the generosity of Madison Square Garden, this unique event gave players the opportunity to play hockey on the Garden's ice.  Following the charity game, attendees took part in an ACG-hosted sports-related presentation and watched the Rangers v. Predators game from a private suite on the Chase Bridge. All proceeds go to help the Band of Parents and the Garden of Dreams.


The Band recently held Put Cancer in the Penalty Box: a skating charity event with games, raffles, and refreshments on September 18 at The Ice Hutch in Mt Vernon, NY. All proceeds are being donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to fund pediatric cancer research
