HONOLULU, HI- In partnership with Domino’s® Hawaii, Make-A-Wish® Hawaii is proud to present its first-ever virtual talent show, Stars at Home. Taking place April 22-29, Stars at Home: A Virtual Talent Show benefiting Make-A-Wish Hawaii will bring together the stars in our community to show support for local keiki battling critical illnesses whose wishes were postponed due to COVID-19.
All are invited to participate by submitting 60-second videos of their talents at hawaii.wish.org by Wednesday, April 15. A unique variety of videos will be selected and featured in the show, taking place at starsathomehawaii.com, which will go live on April 22.
The community will view featured acts and vote for their favorites with $5 donations—virtual “high fives” to waiting wish keiki. The show will also highlight special guest performances from local celebrities.
Make-A-Wish Hawaii’s goal is to receive at least 1,361 “high fives,” one in honor of each of the local and visiting wishes granted in Hawaii last year. As presenting sponsor, Domino’s Hawaii will match each donation.
The three videos with the most virtual “high-fives” by 11:59 p.m. on April 28 will receive a pizza party courtesy of Domino's Hawaii, Quarantine Kit Package and, of course, bragging rights. Winners will be announced on April 29, World Wish Day.
To learn more or submit a video, visit hawaii.wish.org. To cast your votes, visit starsathomehawaii.com beginning April 22.
About Make-A-Wish Hawaii
Make-A-Wish® Hawaii creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We seek to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness. Headquartered in Honolulu, Make-A-Wish Hawaii is considered one of the top charities in the state, with 76 cents of every dollar raised going directly toward granting wishes in Hawaii. One of the first local Make-A-Wish chapters established, Make-A-Wish Hawaii continues to be among the busiest in the nation. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and more than 700 volunteers have granted nearly 1,500 wishes for children across the state of Hawaii since 1982 and have hosted more than 16,000 others for children around the world; the chapter granted 98 local wishes in 2019 alone.
