The Nicholas Colby Fund Delivered Over 1,000 Smiles in 2015

The Nicholas Colby Fund creates personalized events & experiences for children with cancer to uplift their spirits. In 2015 we provided opportunities for at least 1,004 smiles from luxury suite experiences to toys, games, or books for patients primarily from the three largest Northern California children’s hospitals: 

  • Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland 
  • Stanford – Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital 
  • UC San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital 

There were 20 luxury suite experiences at Oracle Arena – a major entertainment venue in the San Francisco Bay Area – to enjoy NBA professional basketball via the Golden State Warriors, Disney on Ice, Harlem Globetrotters, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and more. 

Walt Disney said, "You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality." Without support from individuals and organizations such as Albertsons / Safeway Foundation; CSAA Insurance Group, a AAA Insurer; and the Golden State Warriors, we would not be able to help children (and their families) have another opportunity to smile. 

We believe we truly are making a difference – Helping Children Be Children® – and we are grateful for the support from so many of you. 

Thank you and happy, Happy New Year!
