Get a taste a Hollywood on July 14th when the Elite Charitable Celebration hold a night where you will ‘Step into Classic Hollywood’ at the Roxy Centre. Flowing with bubbles, wines, cocktails and an amazing array of food with premium entertainment. But this night of classic fun has got an important addition, it’ll be supporting a tremendous cause by raising funds to assist Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in their search to both prevent and cure Type 1 Diabetes as well as to launch the ‘Just Like Us’ initiative.
Both ‘Stepping into Classic Hollywood’ and the ‘Just Like Us’ initiative came about thanks to Sarah Im, a loving mum of four. At just three years of age, one of Sarah Im’s children, Paxx, had been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Sarah knew about the tragic effects of the condition as just five years ago she lost her childhood best friend to it.
Type 1 Diabetes is, as of now, an incurable autoimmune condition that affects more than 120,000 Australians nationwide. Even with 126 years of research, there is still no known cause, Type 1 can simply appear unannounced in children as young as six months of age.
After a hard year in 2017 with little Paxx undergoing a number of visits to the hospital leading to sever anxiety and sadness, Sarah realised that there were many other families going through the exact same thing, and looking for support that just wasn’t accessible through the current medical system.
The ‘Just Like Us’ initiative is made up of a group of highly qualified and experienced professionals implementing positive programs. Research has shown that Type 1 Diabetes is increasing at a rapid rate of 6 new diagnosis per day in Australia alone with ‘Just Like Us’ hoping to significantly lower this intense statistic. By offering support and providing a fun and engaging environment, children can build their confidence and self-esteem whilst taught stress relief and coping techniques through mindful activity, empowering children to control their own future and management of their health.
Saturday July 14, at exactly 6pm, will mark the fifth anniversary of Paxx’s Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis. It’s also the night ladies and gents of Adelaide will Step into Classic Hollywood @ The Roxy Centre to show support for this notable cause.
The night will also include a dazzling glam floor show by Adelaide favourite Becky Blake will be followed by an aerial cirque performance to thrill and surprise by two incredible Aerialist who live with Type 1 Diabetes. An inspiring speaker will deliver an important message about the cause as ‘Keeping it Realty’ real-estate agency will then conduct an exciting Live Auction, right before Adelaide’s latest Ballroom Dance Sensation takes to the dance floor, getting the party started.
So glam up for a night of free-flowing bubbles, wines, cocktails and an array of delicious food by My Kitchen Rules Champion, Bree Day.
