Dance, eat, and play the night away! The 1st annual dance and fundraiser for Hot for Hope nonprofit started by our very own Mikey Yessaian (6th) occurred Friday, September 15. From 6pm to 10pm, families could bring their children to the Southern California Children’s Museum, located on 459 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena for fun and to help out. Its location is near Target and next to Rocas Jewelry store. “This location was ideal because this is the children’s museum and we at the museum wanted to support them,” Angela Bassett (Honorary Board Member). Attendees were asked if they could raise or pledge a minimum of $40 and support children whose parents have cancer. Many families helped by funding the event through donations of the food trucks and money to pay for the entertainment and space. “I’d like to thank all the donors for being supporters of Hot for Hope,” Bassett said. Chairman Bassett is a nurse that works in the oncology (cancer) department. The overall turnout was huge that night! “It’s amazing. I feel so honored and humble. It means so much that many people come support this cause,” Bassett said. Parents mingled with one another, while kids enjoyed themselves throughout the museum. They danced to the beat of the DJ, books and a ball pit were available to all, and also a small playground. Outside the area, the back had 3 different food trucks that offer desserts, burgers, and slushes. There were also tables for parents and children to eat, mingle, and play around. This was a great event to have fun and also support the community and a great cause. “I think it’s a good cause for everyone. I think everybody is helping kids in a way,” Emily Yessaian (5th grader at Valentine) said. “I would describe this event as cheerful because it’s a time to make friends and create a good relationship,” Camille Duncan said.” I enjoyed going to this event to not only have fun, but to also benefit others who need support to get back up after a battle with cancer. The parents who have cancer will benefit and also possibly overcome this illness.
