When Chad MacDonald lost his wife Brenda five years ago to Melanoma, he and his three sons rallied the support of their Great Falls community to begin trying to make a difference in Brenda’s memory.

What started in a barnyard, literally, with a Halloween costume party with finger food and kegs has evolved into the Brenda Macdonald Melanoma Research Foundation and the Annual Wings of Hope Gala, now in its second year.

This year’s gala was even bigger than the first, with 400 attendees and 50 corporate sponsors who chipped in $200,000 to help make a difference.
