Soapfest - May 22nd through 25th, 2015
A Night of Stars
Saturday, May 23rd - 7:00PM
SoapFest Charity Weekend kicks off with A Night of Stars, Saturday, May 23rd at 7:00 PM held at the quaint Bistro Soleil, located within the historic Old Marco Inn, 100 Palm Street. The evening’s meal will be created by French born and trained, award-winning Chef Denis Meurgue, well known for his unique and celebratory dinners.
This VIP event will offer several opportunities for up close and personal time with the actors. Celebrity guests from today’s most popular daytime shows will join "old favorites,” and be available for autograph signings, photos, Q&A, and live auctions.
A newly added feature to A Night of Stars is “SoapFest Game Night,” where guests vie for prizes based upon answering trivia questions about their favorite soap stars and stories. This evening event is always a sell-out, so tickets should be ordered promptly.
A Night of Stars tickets (including dinner) cost $125 per person. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $200 and guarantees VIP seating with your favorite celebrity guest.
Note to VIP ticket holders...please email us three choices of actors in preferred order after you purchase your tickets.
