Children's Cancer Association
Oregon Convention Center
Certain events have the ability to take you through a range of emotions and leave you with a full heart, the Wonderball is one of those events. The event attracted around 850 people and raised $1.4 million dollars for the cause. This years theme was "Age of Aquarius" and there were so many great 70's inspired outfits plus, CCA did a stellar job with all the decor. Everything from custom buttons to pristine vintage Volkswagen's staged around the hallways of the convention center. (read more below)
Attendees started the evening by exploring the various rooms and attractions, as well as bidding on all of the rad silent auction items. After finding their tables and seats, guests were treated to an amazing, Hendrix inspired version of the National Anthem. It ROCKED!
During dinner, guests were treated to some more fantastic music and a few speakers. CCA Founder, Regina Ellis gave a heartfelt speech that really drove home the point of this amazing night. Tears flowed freely as we heard from a young cancer survivor, who herself was helped by CCA. Ending the night was a tribute to all the children along with their supporters, complete with hand made signs and singing along to "With a Little Help from My Friends".
