The Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center is turning 10, and we want to share our party hats, balloons and cake with you!

Join us on Friday, July 27, for an evening of live performances at the Akron Civic Theatre starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and will be available at the door for $5 each.

Best of all, three lucky families will win a free pack of four tickets.

Here are a few reasons you won’t want to miss this party:

Musical performances: Dr. Sarah Friebert, the Palliative Care Team, and Bill Considine, president and CEO of Akron Children’s Hospital and his wife, Becky, are just a few of the performers singing or lip synching their favorite songs.

Voting: Just like American Idol, you can cast a vote for your favorite performer. Can’t make it to the actual event? No problem. You can vote ahead of time online here.

Live band: Fox 8 reporter Todd Meany will serve as emcee for the evening, and his band, Ace Molar, will be performing throughout the event.

Yummy food: Enjoy a wide variety of appetizers that are sure to please kids and adults alike!

Raffles and prizes: Feeling lucky? If so, tickets can be purchased for a 50/50 raffle. There will also be a silent auction.

Doggie Brigade: An Akron Children’s event isn’t complete without our favorite four-legged friends, the Doggie Brigade! Seven dogs will make an appearance and will be ready to take photos with everyone!

Family-friendly: Are you looking for a fun night out with your whole family? Then this party is for you. There will be fun for kids of all ages!

Cake: No birthday party is complete without a birthday cake. Come help us make a wish, blow out the candles and sing happy birthday!

It’s for a good cause: It all goes to support and celebrate the Haslinger Pediatric Palliative Care Center, which has been improving the lives of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and their families for 10 years!

Win free tickets: If you would like to join us for this celebration, you can enter to win a pack of four tickets using the link below. The winners will be announced on our blog, Facebook and Twitter on Monday, July 23.
