We celebrated all things Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars, and raised money and awareness for Give Kids The World Village and their work to provide cost-free vacations to critically ill children and their families.
We presented special Disney-inspired BE GREAT! HUMANITARIAN AWARDS to leaders in philanthropy such as Jeff Hoffman (Global Entrepreneur, Priceline.com, iBids), Pamela Landwirth (CEO, Give Kids The World), Kellen Jackley (Former Wish Kid & Child Ambassador, Give Kids The World), and James Dentley (CEO, JD3TV), among others.
The 3-day event was held September 9-11 and featured panel discussions with veteran Disney C-suite executives, and icons such as Pat Sajak (Host, Wheel of Fortune), Jodi Benson (Voice of Ariel, Little Mermaid), and reunited cast of the 90's Mickey Mouse Club.
Evening entertainment included epic concert performances and a private after-hours party at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge inside Disney's Hollywood Studios.
We also provided fundraising support to Cast Member Pantry in our work for Disney cast members in times of need.
