Ryan Choura — July 22, 2014 -- Choura Events is proud to announce its CEO and founder Ryan Choura has been awarded this year's Beacon of Light Award by Walk With Sally – a nonprofit organization that provides mentoring support programs and services to children whose families are affected by cancer.

The Beacon of Light Award honors one individual who "goes above and beyond year after year to help grow Walk With Sally’s mission."

Choura was presented with the award July 19 at the organization's 8th Annual White Light White Night, a premier charity event designed to raise funds and spread awareness for Walk With Sally's programs. This year's White Light White Night was held on the rooftop of The Plaza at Continental Park in El Segundo and produced by Choura Events, a full-service boutique event rental agency in Los Angeles.

"I'm humbled to be this year’s recipient of Walk With Sally's Beacon of Light Award,” said Choura. "Our team takes great pride in helping to make White Light White Night a success every year and we’ve been honored to provide assistance in support of their amazing cause."

"Ryan Choura has been an integral part of helping to creatively define White Light White Night for the past 6 years," said Nick Arquette, founder of Walk With Sally. "His participation and dedication to Walk with Sally and White Light White Night highlights the amazing results that happen when businesses come forward to support charitable organizations."

Choura Events provides a wide range of event-planning services, in addition to maintaining an extensive inventory of event rentals, including chairs, tables, dinnerware, furniture, décor and equipment. The agency has emerged as a top 5 provider of tent rentals in the United States and has executed thousands of events, including the Electric Daisy Carnival, The Taste in Beverly Hills, L.A. County Fair, Manhattan Wine Auction and a long list of non-profit galas, corporate events and celebrations.

Known as one of Southern California's top event companies, Choura Events also earned a nod last year on Los Angeles Business Journal's Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies List of 2013 and was also named a "30 Up and Coming" event expert to watch by Special Events Magazine.
