No one could have predicted that our 3rd Annual Stand up For Kids Comedy Night would be cancelled due to a global pandemic but that is exactly what happened! All in all, our supporters didn’t get to appreciate a night out with friends and family enjoying great food in Leal’s beautiful Barrel Room. We didn’t get to laugh until we cried from the performance of this year’s comedian Kat Simmons’s. And we didn’t get to peruse the many donated silent auction items like Disneyland tickets, bottles of wine, art and so much more!
“The moment we made the decision to cancel the event for the safety of our guests, we knew it would come at a cost that would be difficult to bear, said Executive Director, Patrick Ellis. Adding, “Once we reached out to our sponsors, we discovered their giving spirit was there for Chamberlain’s kids.” Although our sponsors didn’t get to share this fun important evening with all of us, they ALL GIFTED their sponsorship dollars to help us continue our mission. Such generosity is over the top amazing and brings a quote to mind.
“Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.”
—The Dalai Lama XIV
