The event’s host is Charisma Carpenter, an actress from the ABC Family drama “The Lying Game,” and begins at 8 p.m. at W Scottsdale.

The evening’s entertainment will take place around W Scottsdale’s WET pool, which will be decorated with an array of gold ribbons, and will feature a DJ performance from DJ Mom Jeans (actor Danny Masterson, best known as playing the character Hyde on “That 70’s Show”), and a live cirque performance.

Because National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month’s official color is gold, the Gold Party’s staff will be garbed in golden hues; guests are encouraged to dress up with golden clothes and accessories as well.

The event’s proceeds will go toward The Ronan Thompson foundation, which was established after Ronan Thompson’s death from neuroblastoma. National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month’s purpose is to increase awareness for the types of cancer largely affecting children and to raise funds for research and family support.

Every year, more than 12,000 people under 21 are diagnosed with cancer, according to a press release. 

Tickets start at $25 and are available at
