Orange County families will enjoy a rare opportunity to see some of their favorite young celebrities who will come to the Anaheim Hilton on November 14, 2010 for an afternoon of fun and games for a great cause: a fundraiser and toy drive benefiting CHOC Children’s. Event attendees will get to see the red carpet arrival of stars like Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Chelsea Staub (Jonas) and many others, as well as special performances by Ariana Grande of Nickelodeon’s Victorious, Savvy & Mandy of Radio Disney and others. Kids Help Children will offer entertainment for all ages, including bouncers, balloons and face painting for the little ones, and gaming elements for the older ones. Every child will leave with a prize! Best of all, kids will get into the spirit of giving as they play games to win prizes for patients of CHOC who are unable to attend due to illness.
“We are so excited about this unique event,” says Lois Augustine, Director, Community Relations for CHOC Children’s Foundation, which raises funds and awareness for CHOC. “We are very grateful to Kids Help Children and the event’s supporters for thinking of our patients and supporting our mission.”
In the hours before the event kicks off, several of the young celebrities scheduled to attend Kids Help Children will first make a visit to the hospital to greet some of their biggest fans: CHOC patients. For young people who are realizing that volunteerism and giving back is an important part of being a caring citizen, Kids Help Children is a chance to participate in a moment that will be packed with good will as much as good fun.
Kids Help Children is a ticketed event ($25 for adults, $15 for children) that will be held at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel (777 Convention Way, Anaheim, CA 92802) from 2:00-5:00PM on November 14, 2010.
