Flashes of Hope
Big Shots and Little Stars



    When an organization raises $330,000, you know it has some muscle behind it. And the beautiful and talented Allison Clarke, founder of Flashes of Hope, has the likes of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lake Erie Monsters in her corner.
    One of the best parties of the year, Big Shots and Little Stars, held at Quicken Loans Arena, drew 800 guests, a list that grows every year since its first benefit, which was held at Eton Chagrin Boulevard several years ago.
    A big cheer goes out to the Cavaliers Better Halves, who donated money to the Children’s Tumor Foundation, the red-hot Scream Team dancers and the dynamite Cavalier Girls who entertained the crowd.
    Ahmaad Crump and Nicole Cuglewski, the Cavs’ own Q hosts, kept the party going, as guests enjoyed sumptuous food and drink and bid on the silent action.
    Little Star pediatric cancer survivors and their Big Shot runway partners who included team majority owner Dan Gilbert and many Cavs and Monsters players, strutted their stuff down the runway featuring clothes and accessories by some of the finest stores in Cleveland.
    Flashes of Hope changes the way children with cancer see themselves through the gift of photography and raises money for pediatric cancer research. Since 2001, the organization has provided portrait packages to more than 15,000 families. This year it will have photographed 50 percent of the children annually diagnosed with cancer in 60 locations across the country. STORY BY SALI McSHERRY/PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOHN BASHIAN
