The April 22nd “Shine Soiree: A Tea Party Benefiting the McKenna Claire Foundation” is an opportunity to be a part of the MCF mission of raising awareness, increasing community involvement, and funding pediatric brain cancer research. It’s also an opportunity to take time out of our busy lives to share the love, take a sip and savor the small moments.
McKenna’s Tea Cottage will kindly be giving 20% of proceeds from the Tea Party and 25% of proceeds from purchases made in their shop (purchased on the day of the event) to the McKenna Claire Foundation, a fiscally sponsored project of OneOC.
The McKenna Claire Foundation would sincerely like to thank McKenna’s Tea Cottage for opening its doors to us, hosting this event, and graciously offering to donate a portion of the proceeds from the event to the McKenna Claire Foundation.
McKenna Claire Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer
McKenna, a vivacious, seemingly healthy, 7-year-old from Huntington Beach was suddenly diagnosed with a rare, inoperable brain stem tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). DIPG tumors, like many pediatric brain tumors, have very low survival rates. In July 2011, McKenna Claire lost her battle with cancer just six months after diagnosis.
The impact that McKenna had on the world was evident from the out-pouring of support her family received from so many during her illness. Her family's desire to honor McKenna's legacy and to perpetuate the sense of community that lifted them during their darkest time moved them to action. With the help of talented and gracious friends, the McKenna Claire Foundation was born.
The McKenna Claire Foundation’s mission is to cure pediatric brain cancer by raising awareness, increasing community involvement and funding research.
