The foundation held its 3rd Annual Ever After Ball on August 25
September marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and to kick things off the St. Baldrick’s Foundation hosted its third annual Ever After Ball on Saturday, August 25 on the CBS Studio lot. This year the foundation raised over $70,000 with additional donations still pouring in.
This year’s event was remarkable because the foundation honored 8-year-old Grace Ellen Bumstead who is battling leukemia.
The event was hosted by KOST 103.5 FM Co-host, Ryan Manno. Additional special honorees which included Ellen K, host of the Ellen K Radio Show; and Dr. Welli Sun from City of Hope. The event concluded with a surprise head-shave with Manno going bald for the cause and Grace Ellen’s mother who also shaved her head.
There was a guest performance by Aliyah Moulden from ‘The Voice’. The Swansons, Alternative Country Rock-Pop Band Husband-Wife Duo Joe and Angie Finley, headlined the event.
The Swansons performed songs from their newly release album “Country This” including their new music video “Move Forward”.
