Stop! Children's Cancer Fantasy Event
The O'Dome was decked out in an Asian-style theme.
With over fifteen hundred people, organizers say it was the biggest thus far!
That means more money towards the fight against pediatric cancer.
"Its a wonderful cause. Beautiful things here, and just marvelous. we're having a wonderful time," said one of the attendees.
For years the community has come together in support of the fight against children's cancer, and of course that even includes your home team.
It's safe to say there are thousands of people eating the finest of foods and dressed in their best attire here at the 19th annual fantasy.
"We lost our daughter Bonnie to leukemia in 1983. While she was alive she said, dad, lets go ahead and raise money to help other kids so they don't have to go through what I've gone through," said Founder Harry Freeman.
"I consider stop children's cancer to be a community charity so when you look at them, you look at this even come together and it's heart-warming."
In addition to dining and dancing, a silent auction, with plenty of autographed items were up for grabs.
And speaking of things up for grabs, one lucky person is going home with a diamond necklace worth 15-thousand dollars.
Despite the wining and dining, the memory of the children that have passed from battling cancer, is present tonight.
