Circle of Care, a pediatric charity that provides emotional and financial support for children and families suffering from cancer, will recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September with a gala on Saturday, Sept. 15 at L’Escale Restaurant in Greenwich, CT.
Circle of Care president Liz Salguero says having the gala at this time honors Children’s Cancer Awareness Month, and encourages the community to participate in Circle of Care by attending the event.
“Our theme for the evening comes from an ancient Spanish term that defies translation. Duende, or “to have duende,” is a term or phrase often associated with flamenco dance that refers to an unconscious and powerful inner force that harnesses the strength of one’s spirit. It is said that those who have duende possess tremendous soul and magnetism that is both provocative and inspirational. The brave children and families we serve, while facing their greatest challenge, all have a certain duende,” she says, adding, “We invite you to celebrate their boundless spirit on this special night.”
Several attendees of the gala will be parents, relatives and friends of children who benefitted from the Circle of Care mission. The evening will include a gourmet dinner, live music, and special entertainment to celebrate the families as well as the friends, volunteers and donors who support them.. There will also be a silent and live auction. The organization is still accepting sponsorships and donations of silent and live auction items.
Tickets start at $275. For more information visit the gala website.
