August 15, 2015 #OwensWish Came True!
It was a magical evening at “A Starry Night” event this past Saturday evening as we granted Owen’s wish! Myself, Mahsheed Barghisavar, teamed up with Lin Jerome, the founder of the foundation I am a board member on, Ladies Who Dine, along with UNLOKT and RAW FITNESS LV to help a little boys dream come true!!
Owen, a 7 year old boy, was born with a rare form of muscular dystrophy disease. His Make-A Wish is for a backyard oasis with a therapeutic pool spa, so he can play, do sports and continue to do his therapies at home.
The event was a sell out with an outpouring support of more than 500 guests at Hyde at Bellagio. Event hosts included: Unlokt, Raw Fitness, Mahsheed Barghisavar Group (wish grantor), and Ladies Who Dine who presented a $15,000 check to Owen’s family, Lauren and Kristen Andre, and the Make a Wish President, Caroline Ciocca. Coolio mingled with the crowd and ended the night with 4 songs, including “Gangsta’s Paradise (now can be coined as Owen’s backyard paradise).
Some of the auction items included a trip to Italy, Tiesto signed headphones from EDC, Denver Broncos signed balls by the entire team, and NYC Fashion Week tickets. Both sport legends Pete Rose and Jerry Rice, supported the event and released videos to the public requesting their support.
Many shows came out to support A Starry Night: Coolio, Rodney Reyes, Bravo’s Mike Shouhed, Million Dollar Quartet, Absinthe, Rock of Ages, Jersey Boys, Claire Sinclair, Lisa Marie Smith, Murray Sawchuck, Aussie Hunks, Jennifer Romas, Defending the Caveman and Chefs, Julian Serrano and Chef Akira.
