Tomorrow evening is The White Party, the sixth annual event benefitting Tatum’s Bags of Fun.
The White Party is an annual gala, a glittering night full of music, dancing, food and a very competitive silent auction. Every penny raised goes to filling Tatum’s Bags of Fun with toys, books, and games-and to helping a child with cancer feel like a kid again.
Spotlight photography is again proud to be a Bronze sponsor of The White Party. Spotlight is also the official photographer for this amazing event.
Tatum’s Bags of Fun was formed in memory of Gabby Krause, an amazing 6 year old who had a vision that all children battling cancer would receive a Bag of Fun®.
When 6 year old Tatum Parker was in the hospital battling rare bone cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma, she received a Bag of Fun® from the Gabby Krause Foundation. The Bag of Fun® helped Tatum get through the long hospital stays, and was gladly shared by Tatum with many other pediatric cancer friends. The toys and games helped lift Tatum’s spirits, and those of her parents.
Tatum endured a year-long battle in which she smiled her way through 3 major surgeries and 13 rounds of chemotherapy, unfortunately in December 2008 she had a relapse. Tatum completed her 2nd battle with cancer in September 2009, and to this date remains cancer free!
The Bag of Fun® from the Gabby Krause Foundation made such an impact on Tatum and her family, that they wanted to start their own program locally. It is Tatum’s wish to carry on Gabby’s legacy and bring Bags of Fun® to all children battling cancer in Indiana.
