Hollywood’s brightest stars and their children joined Allison and Twitch at Avalon Hollywood to spend a fun-filled day with inspiring patients from member hospitals Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Hospital Orange County at the Dance For Kids Holiday Party. It was a family affair for Oscar Nunez, Ali Fedotowsky, Babyface, Dean Cain, Arianne Zucker, Perez Hilton, Pooch Hall, Patricia Velasquez, Skyler Stone and Kimberly Caldwell, who all brought their kids to enjoy the party. The red carpet was packed with stars sharing messages of hope and holiday wishes to patients at local children’s hospitals all over the country.

Actor and comedian Adam Devine was reunited with his Miracle Kid co-star Angelica Hale from the “Superheroes For Kids” campaign. Paralympian medalist Amy Purdy was reunited with her Miracle Kid buddy Nate Ferrell whom she shared a dance with at last year’s holiday party. Becca Tilley from “The Bachelor” enjoyed taking holiday photos with Miracle Kids and friends at the party. Recording artist and CMN Hospitals teen ambassador, Alli Simpson, said she looks forward to the CMN Hospitals holiday party every year.

Miracle Kids and celebrities showed off their hottest dance moves in CMN Hospitals’ social media dance booth. Fans from all over the world tuned in to the fun during DanceOn’s live-stream of the party hosted by Steven Helmkamp, Allison and tWitch introduced guests to 13-year-old Emma from Avon, Indiana, who dances with Infinity Dance Academy and was the top fundraiser in their Dance For Kids holiday giving campaign. Emma sold custom T-shirts to support her local children’s hospital, inspired by her Miracle Kid friend Maison who is treated there.

Guests were treated to two incredible musical performances. Miracle Kid Angelica Hale, age 8, sang Mariah Carey’s holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and left everyone in awe of her stunning voice. Miracle Kid Isaiah Acosta, who was born without a jaw and the ability to speak, inspired everyone at the party when he took to the stage with Rap artist Trap House to perform his original hip-hop song “Oxygen To Fly.” The combination of Trap House spitting fire on Isaiah’s powerful lyrics while Isaiah commanded the stage and felt every beat of the music, left everyone in the room riveted. It was a powerful moment for Isaiah to share his story using the power of music and to feel the love and support of CMN Hospitals supporters.

The party was kicked into high gear when Miracle Kids Angelica, Nate, Jordin, Maison and Asher shared their signature dance moves. The crowd went wild, cheering the Miracle Kids on! Allison and Twitch taught everyone the Dance For Kids morale dance, which was made up from combining the Miracle Kids signature moves. DJ Bizzy kept the dance-floor packed as over five hundred guests grooved to the hottest hits. Actors Aldis Hodge, Edwin Hodge and Brian White joined professional dancers Comfort Fedoke, Carmit Bachar and Brittany Cherry and Miracle Kids for dance circles and battles hyped by Allison and Twitch.
