The 10th annual WVU Children's Hospital Gala was held in Morgantown Saturday night with a record breaking attendance to celebrate this year's Champion Child.
Over 900 people were at the hospital's top fundraiser. The theme of the night was "An Affair of the Heart." People who work with the children's hospital say there's no other way to describe what working with kids is really like.
"I could talk forever about Children's Hospital because [I] and everyone who works there are very passionate about the work that we do. It's really a calling to work with these children and their families. I really thank the community for their ongoing support of Children's Hospital. Without their donations we couldn't do the great work that we do," Cheryl Jones of the WVU Children's Hospital told 5 News.
This year's Children's Hospital Champion Child was Jordan Beland. Jordan was diagnosed in July 2012 with cancer, and is now cancer free thanks to the Children's Hospital. He says he's ready to get back to being a kid again.
"There's a lot of things I want to do--go spend more time with my family, play ball, ride my motorcycle, hunt, fish," said cancer survivor Jordan Beland.
Live and silent auctions were both held for several valuable prizes, including dinner with WVU Men's Basketball Coach Bob Huggins.
