In turn, the Light Duluth Teal Gala was being held for its 6th year at the DECC.

"Looking out at this beautifully lit up teal bridge always inspires me," said cancer survivor and MOCA Board Member, Kris Greer. "We're spreading awareness and we're also a shining beacon of light and hope. It's the hope that we can do everything we can to end ovarian cancer. This evening, I hope you feel inspired too."

According to MOCA, this year the organization provided $775,000 to ovarian cancer research funding, and is one of the largest private funders of ovarian cancer research in the nation.
