To the 569 people who attended the Bella Bowman Foundation's second annual Bella’s Ball last Thursday at L’auberge Casino Hotel, we offer up a heartfelt 'Thank You' for opening your heart and donations to support our event and our mission.
For those of you unable to attend Bella's Ball, but who have been such great supporters of the Bella Bowman Foundation, we'd like to share with you some of the evening's highlights.
This year, Bella's Ball raised $137,777. This is more than double the amount raised from the first Bella's Ball held last May, just ten months ago. We are very proud to report that the entire event was made possible through donations and with 100% volunteer efforts. This means that all of the funds raised at Bella's Ball go directly to serving children with cancer and their families caring for them during such a difficult time.
The compassion from our guests, sponsors, donors and volunteers is so touching to witness and receive. We deeply appreciate the time, talent and treasures that were so generously shared to make the Bella Bowman Foundation and Bella's Ball such a great success.
The Bella Bowman Foundation will continue to turn your compassion and generosity into gifts of Courage, Strength, Faith and Belief for children that are diagnosed with cancer. The success of Bella's Ball will allow us to continue our mission in the coming year. We look forward to sharing updates with you as our annual planning takes form.
Thank you all again for your generosity.
“You were given this life because you were strong enough to live it!”
