2017 | 007th McKenna Claire Foundation, Party With A Purpose
On Saturday, April 29th, the McKenna Claire Foundation pulled together an amazing community of friends, associates and business partners to hosted the 007th Annual Party With A Purpose. The mission, to raise funds for pediatric brain cancer research and highlight the ongoing research being done to the benefit of children and families who continue to fight the pediatric cancer battle.
This year’s James Bond themed, the 007th Party With A Purpose – “A View To A Cure” was again hosted at the Huntington Beach Waterfront Beach Resort, merging the Bond elements of casino, fine food from Mama’s on 39, sophisticated drink from Four Sons Brewing and Ramspur Winery, music, dancing, and auctions. It is with great pride we announce that $145,000 was raised at this years Party With A Purpose, with these funds being put to work immediately. Thank you to everyone for being part of this annual McKenna Claire Foundation highlight.
The original Party With A Purpose (2011) was hosted by our local community on a neighborhood cul–de-sac to raise funds for McKenna’s treatment. After McKenna’s passing, the community’s desire to be part of the pediatric brain cancer solution continued and the tradition of Party With a Purpose was born. Proudly, in its first 7 years, Party With a Purpose has raised over $600,000 for pediatric brain cancer research.
Thank you for being part of the events success and legacy.
