Casa Colina honors patients at Tribute to Courage Gala
Casa Colina’s annual Tribute to Courage gala will be held Saturday, March 10 at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel and Conference Center, 601 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona.
The gala, hosted by actress, producer and comedian Bonnie Hunt, honors some of Casa Colina’s present and past courageous patients. The Tribute to Courage black-tie-optional reception begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner, program and entertainment at 7 p.m.
The event will honor three patients at Casa Colina—Daniel Franco of Rancho Cucamonga, who was an up-and-coming featherweight boxer until he was knocked out in a fight in Iowa in June 2017; Katrina Hannah of La Verne who suffered gunshot wounds at the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017; and Johnny “Ringo” Scharnweber of Phelan, who was paralyzed after a motorcycle accident in a desert motorcycle race.
All proceeds from the annual Tribute to Courage gala benefit a Casa Colina Foundation fund that helps provide care for under-resourced patients and, in some cases, temporary housing for patients’ families so they may be near their loved ones during the often-lengthy rehabilitation process.
