We are fresh off our trip from Chicago, where we celebrated A Night of Hope with Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg. We want to thank everyone that came out to support the cause, helping to make Friday night one of GR’s highest-earning fundraisers!
Here are some of our favorite moments from A Night of Hope:
1. Evan’s Speech
There were many touching speeches and toasts throughout the night, but Evan Asher, by far, stole the show! Joining his mother on stage, Evan came up to thank everyone for coming out to support Generation Rescue, reminding us all that recovery is real!
2. Donnie & Jenny Celebrate Their 1 Year Anniversary
After making a very touching speech, Donnie Wahlberg took the stage to kick off a solo performance. He then turned the attention over to his wife, where he invited her to dance with him to celebrate their one-year of marriage together. The couple helped remind us that love is still very much alive.
3. Jenny Announces the Total Amount Raised
Following a very successful live auction co-hosted by Donnie and Keith Jones, Jenny and GR executive director, Candace McDonald, took the stage to announce how much was raised for the evening. With tears in her eyes, Jenny announced that the auction alone raised over $200,000! “We’ve come a long way.”
