On Friday, March 19, Starlight Children's Foundation will be hosting their annual ‘Stellar Night’ gala to honor inspiring Starlight families and other very special honorees.
The annual event, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, will honor Larry Flax and Rick Rosenfield, (California Pizza Kitchen) with the 2010 Heart of Gold Award as well as Noel R. Wallace, (The Colgate-Palmolive Company) with the 2010 Jacki Carlish Humanitarian Award.
Hosted by Starlight Global Ambassador Dave Koz, Chris and Kyle Massey, with special performances by Dionne Warwick and Maddie Lauer, the event is one not to be missed. Aside from an awards ceremony, dinner, silent auction, and raffles, the event will be filled with more than 30 of their StarPower Ambassadors, including actress and StarPower Spokesperson Bailee Madison; actors Kay Panabaker, Kaycee Stroh, Allen Evangelista, Jake T. Austin; recording artists Ashlee Keating, Austin Anderson, Tyler Shamy, and Chloe Jordache, and many others.
Each year, A Stellar Night also encourages supporters to invite their children- ages 5 to16- to stroll the red carpet and participate in entertaining activities with the ‘Ambassadors’ in the infamous ’Kid’s Lounge." Activities include face painting, crafts, video games, fun photos ops, and making gifts for hospitalized children. The Kids’ Lounge will also have live music performances by Devon Werkheiser, Kristy Frank and Savvy & Mandy.
