Night of Hope Gala

5th Annual fundraising event celebrates, provides support for childhood cancer warriors

The Fifth Annual Night of Hope Gala drew 360 guests to the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia on Oct. 14. The event to benefit Amanda Hope Rainbow Angel’s celebrated the innocence of childhood cancer warriors. The evening included silent and live auctions, mystery boxes, dinner, and live music and dancing.

Entertainment for the evening was by Crooners Classic and the Anglim Sisters. Paul Horton from CBS 5 served as the emcee, and McKindree Patton, a teen childhood cancer survivor, shared her story. Cheryl Londen chaired the committee. Andrea Acuna received the 2017 Volunteer of the Year Award.

Funds raised support the organization’s Major Distractions program, which provides meals and fun events for families; the Comfort and Care counseling program, which offers free counseling to patients and their families; the Financial Assistance program, which provides families with gift cards for gas, groceries and more, as well as help with utility bills; and the Comfycozy’s for Chemo adaptive apparel.
