An Evening of Promise helps kids with cancer
Parker Hightower, Dr. George and Sue Waked with Maggie Hightower

Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders was the beneficiary as guests gathered at the historic Ponte Vedra Inn and Club for the 7th Annual An Evening of Promise Aug. 23. Expected to raise more than $150,000, the glamorous event provides funds so that medical personnel from Nemours Children’s Specialty Care in San Marco may serve more than 750 local children each year. During the evening, guests enjoyed a night of music, cocktails and fabulous cuisine and an opportunity to partake in a silent auction and a jewelry pull sponsored by Diamonds Direct. Enjoying the fun with her parents was 7-year-old Savannah Lahtinen, who had been diagnosed with Wilms tumor, a form of kidney cancer, but is now cancer free thanks to the folks at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care.
