Location TBD
Our 2020 Night Magic event will be held on Thursday, February 27. We are grateful to the 300 attendees at our 2019 Night Magic event. The attendees and our generous sponsors - donated over $350,000 to Kesem's mission of supporting children impacted by a parent's cancer.
Night Magic is a unique blend of fun, surprise, fantastic food and entertainment – all supporting an unparalleled charity organization which provides support to children impacted by a parent’s cancer. The event brings people together for an evening of philanthropy, discovery and fun. Complete with hands-on experiences, dinner, and an incredible program, Night Magic will inspire you to support this often-overlooked population of children.
All proceeds benefit Camp Kesem and their nationwide network of free summer camps (including local camps run by UC Davis, Stanford, Berkeley, Santa Clara University, UC Santa Cruz, University of San Francisco and Fresno State), ensuring the organization’s ability support more of the 5+ million children who have a parent with cancer, or who have lost a parent to cancer.
