On Saturday, May 2nd, Brenda Cali, Owner and Event Planner with Gatherings for Good volunteered at the annual fundraising event Moments in Time, A Masked Affair, organized by Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation (TBCF). This inaugural event was named after one of TBCF’s most beloved programs that offers special experiences to children with cancer such as surprise birthday parties, meeting celebrities or fun outings.
A special moment took place when guest of honor, 11 year old Faith DeBrum of Santa Maria and her family gave a heartfelt testimonial, thanking TBCF for their all their support after Faith was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. Before the event Faith was treated to a makeover courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue andK. Frank Boutique who provided Faith with a new outfit, jewelry and makeup. The staff at TBCF surprised Faith by announcing that she would be getting tickets to see a live taping of two of her favorite shows – The Voice and American Idol in Los Angeles later this month. It was a very touching moment.
Brenda Cali of Gatherings for Good Events volunteered selling raffle tickets and assisting with the live auction and paddle raise which was a huge success! All donations made that evening will help provide emotional and financial support to families throughout San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.
