to danceHost and French reporter, Jackie Watson was dancing on the red carpet with celebrities at the Lights Camera Cure 5th Annual Hollywood Dance Marathon 2016 held at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood, CA.
Jackie and numerous celebrities dance to the beat at the dynamic Los-Angeles based six-hour charity dance party. Celebrities such as Darla Beaux, Stephanie Bauer, MJ Dougherty, Neil Brown, Jr., Chelsey Crisp, Allen Maldonado, Mateus Ward, Alyson Stoner, and Luna Blaise danced the night away in an effort to support Camera Cure’s fund-raising event which was held for pediatric cancer patients.
There was non-stop entertainment (bands, musicians, DJ’s, etc.), celebrities and VIPs in attendance. The event was followed by a silent auction, food and drinks. Camera Cure is an organization whose mission is to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer patient support and research at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
A very special performance by Sunny Ray, Ray was the highlight of the evening. Sunny Ray, Ray put all to shame, and expressed himself effortlessly by showing off his unique free style dancing skills. Celebrities dance to the beat as they tried in vain to top Sunny Ray, Ray’s infamous ‘bootie shake.’ Though many have tried, none has been able to encompass the art of the Sunny Ray, Ray ‘bootie shake.’ But as Sunny Ray, Ray puts it, “It is all in the padding.”
Cancer survivor Clare Bowen of the hit television show “Nashville” was honored with the “Lights Camera Cure Spotlight Award.” Celebrity ambassadors on the Host Committee include Terrell Owens, Neil Brown Jr., Stephanie Bauer, Jillian Rose Reed and Landry Bender.
It was a fun and exciting night watching the celebrites dance to the beat and we were very honored to be part of this annual celebration.
