Jourdan, who also hosts a popular web-based cooking show, recently opened up about son's battle with Sickle Cell Disease which inspired the idea for the party and a line of necklaces which will be sold to fund research projects and awareness efforts. 

On Instagram, she said, "Thank you everyone who came out to support cell for gratitude. This is just the start of my journey with SCDAA and generating change and awareness. Together we can make a difference."
