LOS ANGELES, Mar 31, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Echelon Club's Founder, Kimberly Moore welcomed special guests, Music Impresario Quincy Jones, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Count Maximilian von Bismarck, and many more to a French-themed "Fleur de Lys Dinner" honoring the Brave Kids Charity. The event took place in the magical ambience of the Hadid Bel Air estate and included a night of delectable dining prepared by celebrity chef, Jack Lee, musical performances by Cindy Gomez and Ashlee Willis, and a gathering of the "whose who" of LA's society.
"It's an honor for Echelon to be able to support such an important cause," says Kimberly Moore. "The purpose of Echelon is to help raise awareness for charities like Brave Kids which are making a profound difference in the lives of innocent children. `La Fleur de Lys' represents purity, innocence, and peace symbolizing the children who benefit from this amazing cause." Brave Kids was founded by Kristen Fitzgerald after the loss of her own two children to rare degenerative neurological disorders. She created the BraveKids.org website to solve the problems she faced when her own children were seriously ill. The Bravekids.org site allows parents, caregivers, and healthcare providers the opportunity to locate medical resources and information on more than fifty childhood illnesses and conditions from one location and provides message boards for parents of children with special needs to connect with one another.
Brave Kids also provides resource centers to children's hospitals to help parents locate pediatric medical information and resources for their ill children while they are in the hospital. "Over 50,000 children were admitted to hospitals in Los Angeles last year," said founder Kristen Fitzgerald. "I am so fortunate to have the support of such a caring organization such as The Echelon Club. Together we can give these needy children the bright future they deserve." The Echelon Club is an invitation-only organization that has supported numerous global charities by gathering its influential members from around the world using its creative energy to raise awareness and proceeds for a variety of charitable programs.
