Warrior Fest® Gala 2023
Charlotte Motor Speedway Club
Coming together to Drive Out DIPG

On September 23rd, 2023, the Warrior Jace Thompson Foundation hosted its First Annual Warrior Fest Gala-Drive Out DIPG.  

The night was spectacular as the room was filled with all things Jace loved to include the finest details set with Jace in mind.  The event room was adorned in green, yellow and gray; all colors that represent brain cancer, pediatric cancer awareness and Jace Kinley Thompson. 

The Warrior Fest Gala was blessed to have over 75 seats filled with supporters and believers in the WJTF mission.  Former WSOC-TV News Anchor Allison Latos emceed the event.  She has been a friend of the Thompson family for quite sometime and they are grateful for her.  

The Speedway Club at the Charlotte Motor Speedway was the perfect place to host our first Gala and look forward to our Second Annual Warrior Fest Gala  2024.  

Our First Annual Warrior Fest Gala-Drive Out DIPG raised over $50,000.  None of what we do is possible without YOU and your suppport.

The Warrior Jace Thompson Foundation (WJTF)  is a non-profit organization founded in honor of our precious 5 year old son, Jace Kinley Thompson, who courageously fought DIPG for 347 days. He left us on October 5, 2018.

The Warrior Jace Thompson Foundation Mission is to raise awareness of DIPG, an inoperable and aggressive pediatric brain cancer and to also provide funding specifically for DIPG Clinical Trial Research.
