The theme is “Be a Superhero,” and guests are asked to dress up as their favorite superhero to come support the foundation that helps families fraught by a medical crisis.

The guest speaker will be Ricky Mena who travels the world as Spider-Man, visiting and encouraging kids with cancer and other challenges. His nonprofit effort, “Heart of a Hero,” helps children who are battling life-threatening illnesses and disabilities.

Donors and sponsors are welcome. Items donations are appreciated, with description and value required by Sept. 27.

A family sponsor of $500 includes dinner tickets for four. A $400 table sponsor includes dinner at a private table for you and your guests. Other options are available.

Since 2010, the See Ya Later Foundation has helped 64 families during their struggle with a medical crisis. It offers baseball and soccer sports camps, waiving registration fee for players who cannot afford it, and has awarded $21,000 in college scholarships to Auburn high school seniors.
