For 20 years before COVID, with the patronage over 10,000 attendees, restaurants, and celebrity guests, Blind Date With a Star (BDWAS) has raised well over $1,000,000 dollars, helping to fund the vital needs of children in our community. This year is no different with 100% of the 2023 Blind Date With a Star proceeds supporting the important long term residential care program that Chisholm Services for Children provides for children ages 12 and younger; programs such as HIGH FIVE ® recreation, Mindfulness Group, pet therapy, adoption, and the LINKS literacy program.
The 2023 fundraiser will celebrate Acts of Kindness (“A.O.K.”) and we hope that you will join us as we celebrate 21 years of Blind Date With a Star in support of the children at Chisholm!
Acts of Kindness is an international movement of doing good deeds and ‘paying it forward’ to those that may need the support: An act of kindness is a spontaneous gesture of goodwill towards someone or something - our fellow humans, the animal kingdom, and the kingdom of nature. Kind words and deeds come from a state of benevolence, generated by a core response deep within all of us.
The children at Chisholm participate in the A.O.K. movement by doing Random Acts of Kindness which ‘pay it forward’….. whether it be a bottle drive for the Kids Help Phone or just paying someone’s parking meter that is about to expire.
The A.O.K. initiative instills faith that there are good things happening all around even when the future may not seem like it……especially for the children at Chisholm.
We invite you to join us in raising funds for the children at Chisholm and give your support to the 2023 edition of Blind Date With a Star on February 28th, 2023.
Together, we all will see that some things in the world are A-OK!
