The Sandra J Wing Healing Therapies Foundation Presents the 7th Annual “Party Palooza” to Help Cancer Patients

Pleasanton, California: The 7th annual “Party Palooza” has begun and benefits the Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation. The nonprofit organization will have 11 individual events to raise money to help local cancer patients.  Donations go toward providing pain and stress relief to local residents suffering with cancer.

These special events are smaller-scale social events, hosted by Tri-Valley residents and companies, each raising funds to support local cancer patients.  All the hosts have generously contributed their time, talent, food and supplies so that all guest reservations and contributions will directly benefit the Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation.

Included in this year’s events are some new events, including a Cal Berkeley vs Washington State football game, Tour and Tasting at Working Man Brewery, an Art of Mixology Mad Men Style cocktail party and a Taste of Italy dinner.  Some “annual” events are back, including the ALREADY SOLD OUT dinner at Bob and Joyce Shapiro’s home, the 5th Annual Sip and Paint Event, and the longest running Party Palooza Event— The 7th Annual Soups of the World, plus more original and special events.
