{Past Events}

There With Care would like to celebrate all the exciting Community and Signature Events we have had over the years, and to thank all the generous businesses, supporters and volunteers who helped make each event a success.

On Tuesday, May 3rd, There With Care participated in Silicon Valley Gives (#SVGives), the Bay Area’s 24-hour online giving event.  Many thanks to all who donated.  This will allow us to provide more essential support to families facing critical illness.

Benefit Concert Fri., February 19th from 6:30-9 PM at Cafe Zoë in Menlo Park

Cafe Zoe benefot concertStudents of the club “Partners in Health” from Menlo-Atherton High School joined together to facilitate a benefit concert for There With Care in the local Menlo Park area. The donations received during the musical performance  contributed to the purchase of supplies for “Mom & Dad Personal Care Kits”. These kits are essential for families involved with There With Care, as around-the-clock care for an ill child requires some extra TLC for Mom & Dad. The concert fundraiser included a wide variety of musical styles and featured performers including students from Menlo-Atherton and the greater Menlo Park community. The event was held on Fri., February 19th from 6:30-9pm at Cafe Zoë in Menlo Park.  20% of all proceeds made by Cafe Zoë during the concert were donated directly to the cause. For more information, email coordinators at partnersinhealth@menloathertonleadership.com.

Each year There With Care holds a very special and unique Annual Signature Event. This event supports our crucial programs which ease the burden for families with children who are facing critical illness. Our signature event this year was ‘Be There With Care 2015’. We had a very special evening on October 2nd, 2015 at Holbrook-Palmer Park in Atherton, CA with fabulous food and music at the Italian Bistro Under the Stars!

This year’s event was special for so many reasons: More than 100 volunteers helped us prepare for the event and represented the organization on the night of–thanks to everyone.  We welcomed nearly 260 guests to our event, many of whom were learning about us for the very first time. And we had a very special family speak about their experience with their daughter’s critical illness and There With Care.  Their son, pictured below, introduced them and captured the hearts of everyone present.

There With Care placed 23rd in terms of unique donors.  This is truly indicative of our effectiveness as a community to come together to support There With Care’s mission of being able to provide a wide range of fundamental and meaningful services to families whose children are going through the critical phase of a medical crisis.

A huge Thank You to everybody who joined us at our fundraising event at  Off the Grid Menlo Park. We had a Volunteer Booth at the CalTrain station — March 18.  It was lovely to engage with our community and spread the word about us!
