Family Reaches Out to the Stars with $10,000 for Charity

OTTAWA, Oct. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Dine with a Star, based in Ottawa Ontario, is connecting fans with stars, all in support of good causes. The organization has just launched its #FirstStar campaign initiative, whereby it hopes to get a #FirstStar onboard. Dine with a Star will donate $10,000 to the winning star's favourite charity and one lucky fan gets an all-expenses paid trip to meet the star for dinner!


"It's really about helping people," says Dine with a Star co-founder, 21, Kayla Howard. "I want to provide the opportunity for deserving fans to meet their role models, all while being able to help out local and national charities."

Fans can enter the contest online by submitting their YouTube video through the Dine with a Star's website here: Fans are encouraged to share their videos on social media and encourage others to vote for the video they think should win.

Voting will run until December 2, 2016, at 12pm EST. The top ten videos with the most votes will be considered finalists. Finalists will have targeted ads, including letters and emails, sent to the star of their choice, encouraging them to participate in the program. The first star to sign up will be given the $10,000 to go to the charity of their choice. The fan whose video has the most votes and is connected to the first star to sign up wins!

"We are simply trying to raise money for great causes all over North America, while at the same time making fans wishes come true," says Dine with a Star co-founder David Howard. "I really do hope this message will spread amongst stars and they will encourage each other to donate their time, in exchange for a charitable contribution. Just think of the impact this can have for charities everywhere."
