The Addi and Cassi Fund Presents:
Moonlight Garden Gala
A benefit for Childhood Alzheimer’s (NP-C)

On Saturday, May 10, 2008, 1000 friends and family joined us for a sold out star-filled night at the new Downtown Reno Ballroom to help find a cure to “Childhood Alzheimer’s” (Niemann-Pick Type C), a rare, progressive and fatal neurological disease that is robbing children of all ages around the world of their ability to walk, talk, or even remember the name of their favorite stuffed animal.

The event was a mystical evening of hope, wonder and childhood dreams as we honored our four-year-old twins, Addi and Cassi Hempel, and children all over the world who suffer from Niemann Pick Tyep C.  Our guests will be treated to an elegant evening with a celebrity performance by Meilnda Doolittle and Terry Fator.  We held silent and live auctions, uplifting music in this enchanting atmosphere and transformed the ballroom into a beautiful moonlit garden, designed in the spirit of a child’s imagination, with tree-lined paths, twinkle lights, fireflies and a fountain of wishes.

  1. Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to grasp sso much approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in itt or something.
    I feel that you could do with some % to power the message house
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.

    I felt an immediate need to help when I read your story from a friend in Reno. I would like to do more but for now I can crochet and am making “Cure Caps” as fast as I can. Hopefully, this will help fund some research for the disease which will help the girls. You are in my thoughts daily. Joyce

  4. Chris & Hugh,
    I am so incredibly sorry to hear about your daughters.
    I would love to donate some portraits I took of the Dali Lama when he was here in Maui last year for the silent auction. I hope it is not too late.
    Please have someone contact me so I can get them to you.
