Ellis Injury Law Is Proud to Sponsor Create A Smile’s Golden Dreams Gala
Ellis Injury Law is committed to helping others by supporting worthy organizations that improve people’s lives. Create A Smile does just that by providing an uplifting experience for children experiencing cancer. Andy Ellis and his team are proud to sponsor the Create A Smile Foundation and to participate in its upcoming Golden Dreams Gala.
The gifts of Create A Smile
Shereen Youssef established the Create A Smile Foundation in 2013 when her nephew Zein was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma. Her family was shaken by this devastating diagnosis but when Shereen saw an inspiring story of the immense joy that another cancer patient experienced when he was given a dream experience, she set out to create that kind of happiness for kids like Zein throughout Southern California. She teamed up with her sister-in-law, Zein’s mother Radwa, and formed Create A Smile to give kids going through cancer a day of brightness when their circumstances can otherwise seem so dim.
Create A Smile relies on partners to accomplish its mission. It works with hospitals and cancer support organizations to reach children who could use its support. It also works with partners to provide gifts requested by each recipient child. Some of the gifts granted so far include Legos, i-Pads, princess parties, and electronics. A hallmark of the organization is Smile Parties that help transport hospital-bound children to magical places where they can briefly escape the realities of their treatments.
Ellis Law supports the Golden Dreams Gala
Create A Smile will be hosting the Golden Dreams Gala from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Ellis Law is proud to be a Silver – Fashion Show Sponsor of the event at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Garden Grove. This sponsorship will allow three Smile Families and Smile Children to attend the fashion show and also provides sponsors with an opportunity to attend a private Sponsor’s Reception to meet a Smile Family.
Personal injury attorney Andy Ellis explained why he is committed to helping Create A Smile:
“This foundation works directly with families and kids who are suffering from childhood cancers. Shereen and her company do wonderful things like bring balloons and costumes and other games to kids while they’re treating for their cancer. In my opinion, it’s one of the best direct hands-on foundations there is. That is why Ellis Law has agreed to become a sponsor at their upcoming gala event. It’s an honor to sponsor this wonderful organization and help them do the good work that they do.”
In short, Create A Smile exemplifies the kind of impact that Ellis Law strives for in its fight for justice on behalf of those injured by someone else’s carelessness. It is a pleasure to have Southern California neighbors who so thoughtfully serve others in a time of need.
