About2017 HighlightsHostsSponsorships

We are grateful to the 250 attendees at our 2017 Night Magic event. They - and our generous sponsors - donated $300,000 to Kesem's mission of supporting children impacted by a parent's cancer. Stay tuned for information on our next Night Magic event to be held in San Francisco in spring 2018.

Night Magic is a unique blend of fun, surprise, fantastic food and entertainment – all supporting an unparalleled charity organization which provides support to children touched by a parent’s cancer.

The event brings people together for an evening of philanthropy, discovery and fun. Complete with hands-on experiences, dinner, and an incredible program, Night Magic will inspire you to support this often-overlooked population of children.

All proceeds benefit Camp Kesem and their nationwide network of free summer camps (including local camps run by UC Davis, Stanford, Berkeley, Santa Clara University, UC Santa Cruz, University of San Francisco and Fresno State), ensuring the organization’s ability support more of the 5+ million children who have a parent with cancer, or who have lost a parent to cancer.
