Annual Party Palooza to Help Cancer Patients

The 6th annual “ Party Palooza ” is coming to the Tri-Valley in September and October to benefit the Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation. The nonprofit organization will have 9 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 this 100% volunteer foundation.  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 Umigo Indoor Kart Racing, Livermore Wine Trolley, Dinner at Uncle Yu’s at the Vineyard and an Afternoon of Bocce at Castlewood Country Club.  Some “annual” events are back, including the ALREADY SOLD OUT dinner at Bob and Joyce Shapiro’s home, the 4th Annual Sip and Paint Event, and the longest running Party Palooza Event— The 6th Annual Soups of the World, plus more original and special events.

All events have a limited number of guests and have sold out in the past.  Reservations can be made at their website.

“It’s a great new line-up this year,” said founder Sandra J. Wing, a multiple cancer survivor. “Party Palooza has become such a great series of fun and creative events to look forward to, and the donations from this and our other events and donors have helped us provide financial assistance to cover complementary therapies helping over 400 local cancer patients in the Tri-Valley.”
