Champagne Cocktail Reception and Three-Course Dinner
Raffle and Silent Auction
Distinguished Luminaries, Wendy Lisogar Cocchia and Sergio Cocchia
This glamorous evening engages more than 400 of Big Sisters’ broad network of supporters and features a raffle, silent auction, three course dinner and live band.
Each year at our Luminary Award Soirée, Big Sisters honours an exceptional person or couple who have moved the needle in regards to children, mentorship and philanthropy. This year, we honour a couple who has stood up for children in a truly exceptional way. Wendy Lisogar Cocchia and Sergio Cocchia know first-hand the challenges families with a child living with Autism Spectrum Disorder face.
When they found the gaps in the system, they sprang into action. Wendy and Sergio led the charge in raising over 30 million dollars to create the Pacific Autism Family Network. They are successful entrepreneurs (Century Plaza Hotel and the Absolute Spa group), philanthropists, mentors, and children’s advocates.
It is our distinct pleasure to honour Wendy Lisogar Cocchia and Sergio Cocchia at this year’s Luminary Award Soirée on October 27th. Please join us.
