Main Event: 6:30PM — 7:30 pm CST
Virtual Event
Our Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago events are combining and going virtual for some 2021 fun! Please join us in supporting children through and beyond a parent’s cancer.
Get ready for some friendly coast-to-coast competition hosted by celebrity, Ken Jeong, and a musical performance by season 14 of America's Got Talent winner, Kodi Lee, which we know you and your guests will enjoy. Sponsors will receive an exclusive invitation to a VIP Watch Party with a cooking demonstration by famed chef, Wolfgang Puck.
All proceeds benefit Camp Kesem and their nationwide network of free summer camps, ensuring the organization’s ability to support more of the 5+ million children who have a parent with cancer, or who have lost a parent to cancer.
