Guests enjoy White Light White Night.
The red carpet, all-white event is set for Saturday, August 22 as inclement weather forced its reschedule from Saturday July 18.

The gala goes from 5 to 11 p.m.

Neil Diamond tribute band Super Diamond will provide entertainment and guests will enjoy gourmet bites from more than 20 restaurants, including The Strand House, Pitfire Artisan Pizza, Simmzy's, and Doma Kitchen, all from Manhattan Beach. Festivities will also include beverages and specialty cocktails from local craft breweries and boutique wineries.

This year, the award will be presented to Todd Klawin of Our Media Group, LLC and South Bay Magazine for all of his hard work and support throughout the years.

Walk With Sally brings comfort, support, and healing to its members through free of charge mentoring support programs and services that provide an emotionally safe environment for children to share their difficult experience with someone who has suffered the same.
Arquette formed the organization to help youngsters get through the difficult experience of cancer in the family. His mother, Sally, the organization's namesake who was diagnosed with cancer, believed in the healing spirit of the color white.
Globally, the color white is frequently aligned and imbued with symbolizing the ability to stimulate a person's own divine nature into healing one's self, known as the "White Light of Healing and Protection". In honor of that belief, Walk With Sally invites guests to come together on a beautiful summer night to celebrate hope, healing, and everyone that has come to battle cancer.
