The Night of Joy was held on Saturday, June 25 on the beautiful Botanical Lawn at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort and Club.
Guests enjoyed a spectacular sunset, as they were served a delicious four course meal, paired with specially selected Booker wines. As the night sky turned to twinkling lights under the stars, A Courageous Family shared how important smiles, memories, family time together and encouragement, have been in fueling their journey as their 9-year-old son bravely fought cancer over the past 5 years.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the attendees, our “powered by” sponsor Northwestern Mutual of Orange County, as well as a $100,000 giving match, over $250,000 was raised to rebuild our Breakaway Adventure fund. This means over 100 Courageous Families will now be able to share treasured time together and create priceless memories on their own Breakaway Adventure.
Jessie’s wish to help all kids fighting cancer permeated the hearts of this intimate gathering of generous people – it was definitely a night to remember!
