The El Segundo-Based Nonprofit Hosts 13th Annual Event to Raise Funds for Programming,
Mentorship, and More
WHAT:  Walk with Sally White Light White Night Fundraiser


On July 20, 2019, 501c3 nonprofit organization Walk With Sally (WWS) will host
its 13th annual White Light White Night (WLWN), a charity event to raise funds
for programming and attention for the organization. WWS believes no child
should walk alone in the face of a loved ones’ cancer journey and provides them
with mentorship programming, family support, and more.
Every year, guests join the El Segundo-based foundation at WLWN for an evening
to shine a light on the struggles of families impacted by cancer while enjoying
programming curated by the Walk With Sally team, including:
Musical performance by the South Bay Duo
High end live & silent auctions
Signature cocktails from Tito’s, beer courtesy of Stella Artois & wine
A “Taste of Los Angeles” featuring over 25 restaurants, including South Bay
staple The Stand House with bites from Chef Austin Cobb, beloved Oaxacan
restaurant Madre, intimate Venetian dinner destination Sosta, and more.

Founded by Nick Arquette, WWS is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit providing free
mentorship & support programs to children and families impacted by cancer.
Named after Arquette’s mother, Sally, who lost her battle with breast cancer
while raising two young boys, WWS provides hope through individualized
mentoring and community support services to empower children experiencing
trauma through a parent, guardian, or sibling’s cancer story. The event’s name
comes from Sally’s belief in the healing spirit of the color white. Throughout the
world, the symbolism of the color white claims to stimulate one’s own divine
nature into healing one’s self, known as the “White Light of Healing and
Protection.” In honor of that belief, WLWN brings the community together on a
beautiful summer night to be the light of hope and healing for everyone who has
come to battle cancer and the effects it leaves behind.

More about Founder Nick Arquette:

Nick Arquette founded Walk With Sally in 2005, naming it for his mother who was
diagnosed with breast cancer and after many years of treatment, died when Nick
was sixteen. After attending both the American Conservatory Theater and Boise
State University, Nick moved to Manhattan Beach 25 years ago to pursue a career
in the film industry and has worked as a professional actor ever since. With an
entrepreneurial spirit, Nick created and founded a series of companies over the
last 20 years.
Since establishing himself in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, Nick never
forgot how challenging and isolating the years of his mother’s illness and loss had
been for him as a child. Wanting to keep the legacy of his Mother alive while
seeking to serve youth facing similar circumstances, Nick searched for mentoring
opportunities in the community only to discover that no organization was filling
this critical support gap. After careful research, he launched Walk With Sally and
began mentoring a youth who had recently lost his mother to cancer. From that
first successful friendship, Walk With Sally’s core Mentoring Program has
expanded, having served hundreds of families throughout the South Bay and
today actively serving over 100 children, with trained volunteer mentors
throughout Los Angeles County.
With all his work throughout the community, in 2011 Nick was awarded Citizen of
the Year by MB Chamber Women in Business and was a finalist for the Daily
Breeze Most Philanthropic in 2012. Walk With Sally was awarded the distinction
of Nonprofit of the Year in 2017 by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of
Nick Arquette currently lives in Manhattan beach with his wife Megan and 2
children Charlotte and Delilah.
