Hollywood Heartwarmers was Applause Entertainment's first very own charity fundraiser. Performers, staff, and sponsors donated their time, services and products in order to help raise funds for the charity FareShare (click here to read about what FareShare does, and how you can help.)
The evening's main event was a Trivia Night like the guests have never experienced before. Using the same technology as our Game Show LIVE! games, we had crafted a series of Trivia questions based around the most heartwarming moments in Hollywood. The guests were all snug and warm inside comfortable cinema seating, and with electronic buzzers in hand, answered questions off of the big cinema screen.
But that's not all the entertainment the guests experienced. True to the Hollywood experience, the guests were greeted at the door by a red carpet entrance and a trio of celebrity impersonators - Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn, and Liza Minelli - and an entourage of paparazzi performers. After they've made their way into the foyer, a flurry of energy descends upon them in the form of Dick Deveroux and Hanz Fondelle. This A-List celebrity treatment is carried throughout the whole evening, with Dick and Hanz also acting as hosts for the game show.
Apart from the trivia questions, there were also rounds of fundraising games where guests donated a gold coin to participate for a chance to win bonus points. The winning team at the end of the night won a lovely gift basket of various gifts and services donated by our sponsors.
Hollywood Heartwarmers was our way to give back to our community, and we are beyond pleased with the results. Watch the video to see what went down!
