No Ordinary Evening was founded to remember and celebrate the life of Declan Drumm Sullivan, who was tragically killed in an accident at the University of Notre Dame on October 27, 2010. His family created the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund to memorialize Declan’s life. The Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund supports organizations that demonstrate substantial local impact in the areas of education and community service. The primary beneficiary of the event is Horizons for Youth. Stay tuned for more details for the 9th annual celebration of No Ordinary Evening in 2020.
On Cloud Nine was founded in 2001 in memory of Paige Barnett, who passed away unexpectedly at 18 months old on February 4, 2000. Paige’s parents, Kent Barnett and Lauren Heath, had been involved with Horizons for Youth for many years, and decided to establish On Cloud Nine, which would honor Paige’s memory and support the children of Horizons for Youth. The event now also honors Lauren, as she was reunited with Paige in July 2015 after a courageous 18-month battle with brain cancer.
