9th Annual Gala
Join Lexiebean Foundation on April 12 for a memorable evening when you can help children dealing with cancer to “wish upon a star.” The Wish Upon A Star Gala is an annual event that aims to raise funds to support the Foundation’s important work with childhood cancer patients. Held at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, this memorable evening includes a fabulous dinner, dancing, entertainment and more – all for a great cause.
Lexiebean Foundation changes lives and empowers families suffering from one of the most difficult health care crises one can deal with: childhood cancer and the emotional and financial burden it imposes on suffering families. Lexiebean’s work provides comfort to kids facing extended hospital stays while offering care packages and financial aid to these patients, their parents and their siblings. We believe in focusing our donations on our community; Lexiebean Foundation works especially with children in the Long Island and New York City area to help make their lives easier.
You can help us achieve those goals by participating in the 9th Annual Wish Upon a Star Gala. The event will include live auctions, which often contain fabulous, one-of-a-kind items and services donated to help Lexiebean Foundation fulfill its mission. By joining in these fun, active live auctions, past participants in our annual gala have walked away with a new roof for their home, an elegant night out in New York City and specialty tickets to major sports events.
In addition to the fun and glamour of the gala’s live auctions, gift baskets from our many great sponsors are part of an ongoing raffle throughout the evening. These baskets include gourmet food options, electronics, beauty products and much more. As you participate in the auctions and raffles, you’ll get to see the results of your work, as a slideshow presenting photos and stories from all of the children and families supported by Lexiebean will play throughout the evening.
An elegant evening on Long Island is always an enjoyable option. Whether you’re a couple looking for a truly inspirational date night or a company looking to enhance your charity profile, joining Lexiebean Foundation for this memorable gala is both fun and rewarding. If you have members of your family that have struggled with cancer, especially childhood cancers, you know all too well how draining and exhausting the process can be, from the physical effects of cancer itself to the emotional effects of constantly managing treatment and worrying about the future.
Lexiebean Foundation’s work helps to address those emotional effects of childhood cancer in NYC, as well as the financial burdens that this kind of extensive medical treatment can put to bear on family finances. When you buy a ticket to the Wish Upon a Star Gala, you are helping to support direct financial aid to struggling families as well as special gift basket presents that put a smile on the faces of children and their families.
There are a number of opportunities to expand your involvement in our annual gala. One ticket costs $125.00, and you can rest assured that your ticket purchase is going to support a great cause as well as an evening out. These tickets can also make an excellent gift for people who want to spend an evening supporting meaningful change and awareness for children with cancer.
If you have a company, nonprofit organization or professional services firm in Long Island, you can also partner with the Lexiebean Foundation to show your support as a company for this critically important work. We recognize our sponsors prominently throughout the event, advertising your services and products directly to some of the most motivated, charitable people in the Long Island area, and you can show how much your company cares about giving back to the community.
Our Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorships offer different perks, including complimentary dinner guests and display recognition throughout the event and on our website. We also offer journal ads, ranging in size from a business card ad to a full cover page. These ads provide an opportunity for Long Island and NYC businesses and organizations to speak directly to the people who attend our annual Gala as well as to send messages of support and comfort to people in their networks who may be struggling with childhood cancer themselves.
Don’t forget that the Wish Upon a Star Gala serves a great cause, but it’s also a great deal of fun . It offers delicious food, excellent music and dancing, a movie-premiere-style photo backdrop for photos with your friends and colleagues as well as exciting, one-of-a-kind auction items – all for a cause you care about.
Join us from 7:30 pm to 12:30 am on April 12 for the Wish Upon a Star Gala at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. It’s easy to buy tickets or even a sponsorship on our website, or give us a call at 1-888-539-2326. No tickets will be sold at the door, so it is important to reserve your place in advance.
In addition, if you want to support the important work of the Lexiebean Foundation but are unable to join us on April 12, you can also make an online donation to support the cause. Your donation can also support Lexiebean’s array of programs, from ongoing financial support to annual toy drives to enliven the holiday season for suffering NY families. Help us help children with cancer in Long Island to wish upon a star and achieve their dreams.
