Little Smiles lit up the lives of 12 children living with life-altering diseases at the Seventh Annual Stars Ball on Saturday night, November 22nd, at the Please Touch Museum, the perfect spot to host an event that celebrates children.
The evening began with a VIP dinner for the little stars in the carousel room, where they dined on dishes by Brulee Catering, and enjoyed a ride on the carousel. Then it was lights, camera, action as they made their way down the red carpet, signing autographs and posing for fans.
Fox 29’s Alex Holley and Matt Paterson, president of Little Smiles, handed out mini Oscars along with gift bags to the celebrated gifts. A buffet dinner was served, as guests checked out and bid on the extensive silent auction items available. Afterward, the guests danced till closing to Funktion 11 before heading home with memories that will last a lifetime. Since 2011, the Stars Ball has raised $350,000, and is the main source of revenue for Little Smiles. Proceeds help the organization put smiles on the faces of local children battling chronic or acute illnesses or experiencing other life-altering situations.
