This is the sixth year running that the non-profit organization Walk With Sally will host their annual White Light White Night gala for Angelenos whose family members have cancer.
More than 1000 of LA’s hautest will gather at King Harbor in Redondo Beach on Saturday, July 21st for an evening of decadence. Those who buy tickets to the fundraiser will sip cocktails from Patron, enjoy nibbles from South Bay eateries such as Manhattan Beach’s Strand House and Hermosa Beach’s Hot’s Kitchen, bid on items at a silent auction and enjoy a performance from the band Smash Mouth.
Says Walk With Sally founder Nick Arquette: “Each year, White Light White Night serves as an opportunity to share the stories of the hundreds of children in Los Angeles who get lost in the mix when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer.
“This event gives those children a voice and allows us to fund existing and new friendships with mentors. Without the support of our community, we would not be able to impact those children’s lives the way we’ve been doing during the last five years.”
Last year’s event raised more than $150,000 for the organization’s mentorship program, which benefits children whose parents or siblings have been afflicted with the disease. Their goal this year is to top that amount and raise $250,000.
The event will be sponsored by Momma Mia Worldwide for the second year in a row.
Tickets for White Light White Night go on sale Monday, May 20th.
The event begins with a VIP pre-party and silent auction at 5pm, followed by a Taste of the South Bay at 7pm.
