One of My Favorite Events of the Year: Notes & Words
April 25, 2019
Kelly Corrigan is funny, warm, and giving and I’ve been so lucky to experience her wisdom through the years as a sponsor of her annual Notes & Words benefit for Children’s Hospital Oakland. Anyone who has ever read Kelly’s bestselling books knows of her gift for finding humor in even the most trying circumstances. Through her words, she provides hope to others. And her same sense of optimism radiates through Notes & Words.
This year’s benefit is Saturday, April 27 at Oakland’s Fox Theater. I would love for you to join me. Since its debut a decade ago, Notes & Words has raised millions for Children’s Hospital Oakland (CHO), helping to ensure that this top-notch facility continues to deliver hope and healing to children throughout the Bay and around the world. Because insurance covers only a fraction of CHO care, the hospital depends on alternative means of support in helping it to transform young lives. Notes & Words plays a leading philanthropic role.
And it’s fun! Charismatic Kelly always brings together the best and brightest talent. This year, she welcomes the brilliant Ryan Tedder. In addition to his own success with his band One Republic, Tedder has written and produced for Adele, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and U2. The fabulous Helen Hunt will also be there, as well as Bay Area writing phenom Andrew Sean Greer.
Todd and I hope to see you Saturday, April 27 at the Fox Theater in Oakland for this special 10th anniversary Notes & Words benefit for CHO. It’s truly one of my favorite nights of the year. Purchase tickets, or if you can’t join, please consider donating by clicking here.
