Aug 22, 2015 it was another great White Light White Night, a charity event dedicated in raising funds to benefit Walk With Sally. Their mission: To provide free mentoring program for children of parents who has been affected by cancer. This year, people opened up their hearts and wallets and Walk With Sally was able to raise over $220,000.
The beautiful event was filled with gorgeous LA elites and celebrities all wearing white on top of the Plaza at Continental Park. Now in it’s 9th year, this charity started by Nick Arquette was to “honor the power of white as a healing process” between Nick and his mom as well as those of whom that were affected by cancer.
At 5pm, celebrities walked the red carpet as they were interviewed by the beautiful host Jessica Rosales. Some of the celebrities spotted were Kim Matula, Daryl Evans, Linsey Godfrey, Cher Calvin and many more who trickled in as the sun set on this magnificent night.
During the event, South Bay restaurants stepped up and donated their tasty bite sized treats. From handmade pastas from Bettolino Kitchen to The Strand House’s Keylime Yuzu Custard. Delicious bite sized treats were abundant for all attendees.
Many libations were available to choose from as well. Camp Brew Co supplied the craft beer scene, Stella Artois for those who wanted beer in a glass, a wine garden area that included Alexander Valley Vineyards, Manhattan Margarita and Deep Eddy Vodka for those who desired mixed drinks and cocktails.
But most important part of this event was the silent auction that surrounded all around the rooftop. There were lots of items for bid. From restaurant experiences to wine lots, there was something here for everyone. The staff at Bidpal were walking everywhere to help those who were interested in silent bidding on rare and unique items such as the Weezer signed guitar shown below.
The night was capped off at the Main Stage for Beacon of Light and Friendship Awards, Stand Up for A Child, and a Live Auction followed by Super Diamond (Neil Diamond Tribute) performance. A star studded night, raising money for a great cause.
