All Star Charity Gala 2016


The DeBartolo Family Foundation was excited for the 13th All Star Charity Gala’s venue change to the beautiful Marriott Waterside hotel in Tampa.

Soap opera stars, athletes, actors, musicians, chefs and local personalities were seated among over 700 guests that helped raise a record $1.1million. The ballroom transformed with white drape, chains and black carpet, allowed the guests to enjoy a delicious ribeye dinner and dessert provided by Eddie V’s. Miggs & Swig’s JoJo & former N’ Sync member, Joey Fatone emceed this year’s live auction raising over $175,000 on items including a trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame which sold twice, VIP trips to Napa Valley & Albany, Bahamas, a Super Bowl 51 package and the sought after trip to the ever popular Fourth of July extravaganza at the DeBartolo family ranch in Kalispell, MT.

To end the evening, the water view window hallway was transformed into an after party where guests danced to DJ Michelle Pesce, were entertained by Joey Fatone singing on stage & snacked on chicken tenders, french fries and milkshakes provided by PDQ.
