Boomtown Gala SHAREs in the effort to support children with SHARE, INC.

Razzle and Dazzle over the 55th Anniversary Boomtown Gala for SHARE, INC on May 31, 2008. SHARE was founded in 1953 as a non-profit philanthropic organization composed of women who raise funds for ‘at risk’ youth, developmentally disabled, abused, and neglected children. These women are passionate and devoted to helping these children as well as raising money for medical research for all forms of developmental disabilities. SHARE, INC. has raised over forty four million dollars to date.

SHARE, INC. has had the gracious ability to assist many facilities each year with the success of the Boomtown Gala. Some of these are Ahead with Horses, Cedar-Sinai, Center for the Partially Sighted, Dream Makers Project, Exceptional Childrens Foundation, Friends of CASA, Hathaway-Sycamore Child & Family Services, I Have A Dream Foundation – Los Angeles, Infinite Dreams, Kayne-Eras Center, Sophia T. Salvin Special Education Center, Stuart House facility of the Rape Treatment Center, and Team Prime Time.

This is sure to be a star-studded event where the dress is ‘dressy western attire’. Cocktails will be flowing, live and silent auctions will take place, as well as a sit-down dinner with entertainment by Clint Holmes (voted best all-around entertainer in Las Vegas), 2007 Tony Award Winner Jay Johnson, American Idol Winner Taylor Hicks, and the fabulous dancing Share Ladies.

The Santa Monica Civic Auditorium has been filled with VIP surprise performers and guests, one of which will be Paris Hilton. Nigel Lythgoe, Executive Producer of “American Idol”, will be presented and honored with ‘The Shining Spirit Award’.
