The 2024 Cure VCP Disease Celebration is just around the corner, and we wanted to give you an idea of what to expect. In this guide you’ll find some basic information about event, but we’ve also included some extras like places to stay and some fun things to do while in town!

Attire: We encourage you to dress up in Southern Chic. What the heck is that?? Southern chic is wearing a tailored dress or bow tie. Southern style is seersucker and gingham, eyelet and linen, and loving your signature scent. Southern style is dressing up your school colors. Southern style is channeling the best of the South—the culture, the people, the history—and wearing your look with pride. But most importantly, be comfortable, but no jean shorts!!


 

WHY A CELEBRATION?

There is no better way to spread awareness and raise funds than by bringing together a community of individuals who are ready to fight and party with a purpose. The money we raise from the Celebration will support funding important research projects and critical resources that are important for VCP disease patients around the world. Bringing us together as a community to celebrate reminds us that we are in this fight together!
