Walk with Sally~White Light White Night

As some of you know my husband, Nick Arquette, created a non-profit mentoring program supporting children whose families are dealing with cancer. Having lost his own mother to cancer at a young age, Nick knew how much the support of an adult who has gone through this tragic loss, would be valued. From this, "Walk With Sally" was created.
Over the weekend, Walk With Sally held their annual, 'White Light, White Night' fundraiser. With everyone wearing white, over 700 people gathered to enjoy food, drink and an amazing concert with Gavin Rossdale. The energy in the air was unsurpassable. Friends and supporters gathered together on the warm breezy evening, while the mountains of Los Angles, stood behind us, bathed in the lavender glow of the sunset. All in all a magical night.
one of the more powerful moments was Gavin {and audience} covering, Stevie Nicks, "Landslide":

Such a wondeful night for a wonderful cause....thank your husband for all of us who have gone through this. My children were all in college and I was so thankful they dealt with things as well as could be expected. Yesterday was my birthday and I treat each year now as a bonus!!

Thanks again for supporting so many with this great charity.
