Anybody planning to visit Disneyland in California on October 5 will have to pay a little bit extra than usual… but don’t worry, it’s all going to charity.
Hannah Montana’s Miley Cyrus is to celebrate turning sweet 16 with a massive birthday bash at the famous themepark, and the young star is inviting fans to join her by paying $232 to raise money for charity.
“The best part of the party is we’re going to recognize some really cool kids from Youth Service America who are giving back to their community,” said Cyrus. “That’s so awesome because I think it’s really important for kids like us to volunteer.”
Ticket numbers to “Miley’s Sweet 16 – Share The Celebration” are limited to 5,000, and the event will feature a wide range of activities to allow guests to join in the celebration of Miley’s magical milestone. Special Party Zones will highlight the music and fun of Hannah Montana with themed activities and entertainment, and the party will end with a massive fireworks display.
“I only turn 16 once, so it’s going to be an awesome party with my favorite rides, hanging out with friends, fireworks and more,” she said. “I’ll even get to sing a couple songs.”
Youth Service America – who will benefit from the event – is an organization that seeks to improve communities by increasing the number and diversity of young people, aged 5 to 25, serving as volunteers. The young star hopes that other young Americans will be inspired to volunteer in their own hometowns.
