JoyRx is a beautiful story, spanning 28 years: a story about children, about families, about those who have championed much-needed support for kids during their most challenging chapters. Once Upon a Joy Story is the reflection of this tale long told — one we still tell ourselves and all who will listen. Envelop yourself in the tales that surround us — heroes young and old, characters who inspire us, and adventures that remind us that our lives are made of stories.

The Event

Join us for Once Upon a Joy Story — chronicling the tales which have brought us to where we are today: the inspiration, the tribulations, the magic. With the ending yet to be written, we’re ready to transform into a whimsical world of fable. Together, we will experience an evening full of surprise and delight while raising critical funds for JoyRx programming to help thousands of seriously ill children and their families, here in Oregon and across the land.

Row of Lytle Barnett Valley wines

There are plenty of reasons to celebrate at Wonderball, so why not commemorate your night with some libations for a good cause? With the Champagne Upgrade, you’ll enjoy Lytle Barnett Valley Champagne Brut 2016, a rich vintage with delicate aromatic notes of almond croissant, ripe pear, and brioche. It’s Once Upon a Joy in a bottle — and can be part of your experience. Contact JoyRx Event Coordinator Margaret Martin at to upgrade.
