An estimated 600 guests and participants — nearly twice as many as the year before — attended the Night of Rock Stars event presented by the Re/Max Alliance Community Team this past Friday.
The event was held at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville and raised thousands of dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Children’s Miracle Network of St. Louis, and Shriners Hospital for Children.
The evening’s “rock stars” included Autumn Sims, Joseph Henderson, Ryker Few, Austn Bass, Quintin Byrne, Elsa Wiemerslage, Nicki Guldner, Cash Broyles, Jack Burke, Kalen Bravery Allie Lamb, and Grace Hassard.
Highlights of the event included the arrival of the children as they walked the red carpet, followed by a musical performance by each of the 12 children, with each Rock Star accompanied by the band Frankie Says Relax, led by Mike Bellovich.
Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Remy, of “The Mason & Remy Show,” New Country 92.3. Owners Tammy Anderson-Owens and Mike Owens both addressed the large crowd, with the National Anthem sung by Shriners Hospital Ambassador Keira Cromwell, and the Presentation of Colors by the 3rd Battalion, 383rd Regiment, from Jefferson Barracks.
The 2019 Hall of Fame Inductees are: Kelan Masinelli, Emma Tallon, Elijah Daley, Leia Sloan, Phoebe Moore, Danielle Dinges, Ellanora Stone, Charlie Garcial Evie Hart, Dameron Donaldson, Audrey Norris, and Jaxon Anderson.
