The 7th annual White Light, White Night fundraiser event was held at Manhattan Beach Studios on July 27, 2013. This event is held every year and benefits Walk with Sally to help provide mentoring support programs and services to children who have parents or siblings with cancer.
It was one classy event where guests could enter via red carpet. People were dressed in all white and enjoyed a cocktail party filled with delicious eats and drinks.
Several restaurants and sponsors were present offering some of their renowned dishes and drinks. From scrumptious salads to savory dishes to delightful desserts and refreshing drinks, there was something for everyone.
In the middle of the various restaurant and drink booths were long tables filled with various items being auctioned off. Guests could bid on items like sports memorabilia, collectibles, beautiful paintings and various wines and entertainment tickets.
There was a beautiful VIP area where guests could relax and mingle with others. This was also the area where announcements and a pre-concert was held before the main outdoor concert of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
It was a fun night of good food, good drinks and good music but beyond all of that what made this event special was the cause behind this and all the people who came out to support it.
At one point Cyndi McMaster, a Walk with Sally volunteer and chair of the White Light, White Night 2013 event, was on stage and she asked how many people had an immediate family member affected by cancer. She asked everyone too look at all the hands raised in the room and to remember those hands. This is what this event was about, giving support and hope to all these people with their hands raised. It was a wonderful night filled with love, light and hope. Walk with Sally’s mission is to provide mentoring support programs and services to children with parents or siblings with cancer, one child at a time, one heart at a time. This night, I witnessed people making a difference, one person at a time.
