Event Details

Brenna Corcoran was a lot like other four-year-old kids. She loved princesses, motorcycles, and cheese pizza; however, everything changed in early 2022 when she was diagnosed with DIPG, a devastating form of childhood cancer.

This November, Brenna should be turning 6, but instead we mark the milestone without her. On November 11, 2023, the Maryland Chapter (Brenna Strong) will hold our first Brenna's Birthday Fundraiser to raise money to help find a cure for pediatric brain cancer. Our theme will be Bow ties and blue jeans, which represents who Brenna was perfectly. So make sure you sparkle up top and are ready for a party from the waist down and join us for some great fun for an amazing cause.

The evening will feature great food from Copper Creek, cash bar, games, music, raffles, and a silent auction with thousands of dollars of experiences, goods, and gift cards. This is a perfect place to get a head start on some holiday gift buying, or grab a wonderful treat for yourself, all while helping to find a cure for this insidious disease.


Single Ticket - $15

Couples Ticket - $25

Registration includes limited open bar, food, music, and access to exclusive auction items. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend this event.


Why We Fight

Brenna was a 4-year-old with beautiful, long eye lashes and big blue eyes that fought DIPG with nothing but strength and bravery for 7.5 months. Brenna was the youngest of 6 children. She loved Disney, princesses, unicorns and motorcycles. She was the prettiest princess of all that loved hanging out with her sisters, brother, mommy and daddy. You could find her on the field playing t-ball and also dressed ready for dance class. She loved going to the beach but needed a pool on the beachside as she did not like the ocean. Her smile will always be contagious and will never be forgotten.

My name is Bonnie Corcoran, I am a teacher, wife, grandmother and mother of 6 beautiful children. On January 25th, 2022, our world was turned upside down when our four-year-old daughter, Brenna was diagnosed with DIPG, an inoperable, incurable brain tumor. That day we promised her that we would never stop fighting for a cure for her, that her fight was our fight. Despite our efforts our sweet Warrior Princess laid down her sword and gained her angel wings on September 6th, 2022. My husband and I intend to keep our promise to Brenna and never give up fighting for a cure, this is why we have decided to start the Maryland- Brenna Strong Chapter of The Cure Starts Now.
