Fighting cancer James Bond style for 'Big Shots & Little Stars' fundraiser event

November 19, 2013  |  Posted by Kristel Hartshorn

Stilettos and dress shoes walked the court at The Q Tuesday night for the "Big Shots & Little Stars" charity event presented by Flashes of Hope. The Q was transformed into a James Bond theme night, complete with flashing lights, cocktails, and expensive cars to raise money for pediatric cancer research.

The Main Event: "Big Shot & Little Stars" Fundraiser

The 411: The Q is where all the action went down. The night was presented by KeyBank, Penske Cleveland and Richard Horvitz & Erica Hartman-Horvitz to benefit Flashes of Hope and the Children's Tumor Foundation. Hosted by Cavaliers, the Lake Erie Monsters and Quicken Loans Arena, the event attracted more than 1,300 guests. Cavs and Monsters players and coaches greeted guests on the red carpet inside the Cavaliers Team shop, then walked alongside the "Little Stars" on the red carpet. The evening was highlighted by an unforgettable fashion show when the "Big Shots" strutted their stuff on the runway with the real stars — children who have beaten back cancer.
