Team Bella Bear honored Star Bella, who couldn't attend Starry Night Los Angeles because she was in hospital receiving chemo.
Starry Night, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s new walk/run that shines a light on children with brain tumors, made its Los Angeles debut on Nov. 22. At start time, the event had raised $33,000.
The crowd came to the 8.5K at Griffith Park to honor local children with brain tumors. These Stars were Adam, Bella, Brittney, Caitlyn, Cassie, Chloe, Dylan, Jackie, Jake, Parker, Ryan, Yolanda and Zack.
“Starry Night was a huge success for Los Angeles. Everyone I’ve spoken to, from hospital support groups to families, are so happy to be here,” said committee chair Kathy Kelley, mother of Star Parker. “It’s exceeded expectations and we are looking forward to next year.”
Hundreds of participants lit lanterns at the end of the event to honor children affected by a brain tumor diagnosis, including many who are no longer with us.
A portion of Starry Night Los Angeles’s proceeds will be donated to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for a family services program for children with brain tumors.
The Starry Night Hero Award went to We Can, a support organization that provides programs to bring together families affected by a childhood brain tumor diagnosis in California.
Actor Eric Etebari emceed the event and gymnasts from Klub Gymnastics entertained the crowd. Neuro-oncologist Dr. Girish Dhall and registered nurse Barbara Britt of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles attended the event.
“What a joy it is to see how many people are here today to support the great work of the PBTF,” Dr. Dhall told the crowd.
As of Nov. 22, the top individual fundraiser was Denise Weiner ($2,650) and the top team was Team Bella Bear ($3,900).
Thank you to the dedicated volunteers who organized the event.
