ALL of this to honor 30 amazing kids who are affected by varying types of disabling conditions and have overcome great adversity! Join us for Night of Superstars, a formal red carpet event created to recognize these Superstars for their incredible accomplishments!
The event is formatted much like "Night at the Oscars" but 30 kids are the honored celebrities. The day of the event, they get pampered at DEAR CLARK HAIR STUDIO (hair/make-up/nails), dressed in formal attire provided by WATTERS, then driven by limo to the Winspear Opera House (AT&T Performing Arts Center). Once they arrive, they are escorted down the red carpet by guest celebrities from the TV/Film, Radio/Music and Sports industries. As they progress down the red carpet, YOU and our 800+ guests cheer them on, asking for their autographs and pictures! Several TV stations and local publications are on site to interview the kids and our guests. Following the red carpet event is an awards ceremony where each of our "Superstars" is recognized and given an award. After the awards ceremony, the kids and their parents return to their complimentary hotel rooms for a weekend "staycation" and we proceed with our Celebrity/Sponsor Post Reception for great food/drink & entertainment!!
