About the Evening
The Challenged Athletes Foundation is honored to share that A Celebration of Will, A CAF Gala to Honor the Legacy of Robin Williams, held on March 7th, was a huge success. Thanks to the generosity of our anonymous matching donor, sponsors, donors, guests, incredible table captains and co-chairs Jeff Jacobs and Jeffrey Essakow, over $3 million dollars was raised and placed in the Challenged Athletes Foundation Endowment in Memory of Robin Williams.
480 supporters gathered at the beautiful Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa to celebrate WILL and pay tribute to dear friend and long-time CAF supporter Robin Williams. The evening was filled with uplifting and transformational moments including dance performances by CAF athlete, Paralympic medalist and Dancing with the Stars fan favorite, Amy Purdy.
