Bal De Neige and Coast To Coast To Distribute $150,000 to Lighthouse and Wellspring

The theme of the 2014 edition of the Bal de Neige, held in February, was “Rhinestone Cowboy – Denim and Diamonds, Leather and Lace”. It was another fun event with partyers in retro urban-cowboy kit or good-ol’-boy country denim and boots. All the gals looked real purdy and the guys were a-hootin’ an’ a-hollerin’. After dinner, everyone kicked up their heels, grabbing partners for some two-steppin’ do-se-do that lasted into the wee hours.


The Bal de Neige raised over $100,000 for Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation. The Foundation pledged to match funds, resulting in an additional $50,000 that will be directed toward the two benefiting organizations.

As a result, a total of $150,000 will be distributed equally between Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children and Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House for paediatric oncology programs and services.

We can’t begin to express our gratitude for all of the goodwill that surrounds us. A special thank you to Stacey and Brydon Cruise for their very generous contribution to the event and to our 2 anonymous donors who so generously matched dollar for dollar, the amount raised through the Live Auction.

A huge thank you as well to the numerous sponsors who so willingly offered auction items and prizes:
