The stars were shining brightly Friday evening, May 4th, at Cleveland Public Hall, as event attendees came out for the HeartThrob Ball to support Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. Everyone was a winner at the event, especially the children, as over $100,000 was raised to renovate existing space at the Center for Autism into a specially designed preschool room.
PromGirl.net provided an amazing embellished sequined dress for me to wear to this special charity event. The knee length Clarisse dress added elegance and glam while strutting down the red carpet. I polished off the formal look of the dress with gold shimmering platform peep toe pumps to sparkle from head to toe!

One of the highlights of the evening was a surprise visit from American figure skater and Olympic gold medalist, Scott Hamilton. Scott was born in Ohio and has been a patient at the Cleveland Clinic. Scott founded the CARES Intitiative (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship), a thriving partnership with the Cleveland clinic Taussig Cancer Center. Scott CARES focuses on patient education, mentoring and fun raising research.
The well-deserved Courage Award recipients Jaime Bradford, Gabe Boylan, and Jose Dybzinski, were the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital honorees and the heroes of the event. Each of these children inspire us with their indomitable spirit, strength and fortitude. They face their overwhelming obstacles every day with courage and determination.
Two-time Grammy award winners, Kool & The Gang, entertained the crowd and didn't miss a beat. The group has taken a generation through four decades and are best known for their hit song "Celebrate Good Times, C'mon!," together with other songs such as "Jungle Boogie," "JoAnna," and "Cherish the Love."

Yes. That's my hand one of the lead singers is holding! I'm still giggling like a teenager!
A good time was had by all.
