White Light White Night (WLWN) is Walk With Sally’s annual gala event, raising funds for our mission to provide hope through mentoring support and programs to children with loved ones impacted by cancer and to ensure no child experiencing trauma through a parent, guardian, or sibling’s cancer journey walks alone.

WHY WEAR WHITE: Sally believed in the healing spirit of the color white. Throughout the world the symbolism of the color white claims to stimulate one’s own divine nature into healing one’s self, known as the “White Light of Healing and Protection.” So, in honor of that belief, we as a community come together on a beautiful summer night to BE THE LIGHT of hope and healing for everyone who has come to battle cancer and the effects it leaves behind.

August 20, 2022



Our 2022 event included performances by Hollywood U2 and Olivia Pucci, delicious bites from some of Los Angeles’ best restaurants, and special tributes to the 2022 Beacon of Light Award honoree — Nick Arquette, Lifetime Friendship Award honoree — Dr. Joe Sciarra and Cristobal Duran, and Mentor of the Year honoree — Jeff Wilson.

We wanted to graciously thank all of our sponsors, partnerships, and restaurants for participating and giving back to this truly amazing cause.
