Additionally, the Believer Gala honored four individuals who have made notable contributions to TRF through direct efforts, philanthropic support, or by raising public awareness for pediatric cancer. This year’s honorees included 16-year-old photographer Phoebe Melikidse, Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada, Qualtrics and Fox 5 Vegas MORE’s Rachel Smith.
