CLEVELAND-- The stars were out Wednesday night as the Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the annual “Big Shots and Little Stars” fundraiser at Quicken Loans Arena.

"We have 42 little stars on the runway tonight and all of them are pediatric cancer survivors," said Allison Clarke, founder of Flashes of Hope.

The money raised goes to Flashes of Hope and The Children's Tumor Foundation.

"What means the most to me is to see the interaction between the players and the young kids, knowing it's such a win-win," said David Blatt, head coach of the Cavs.

Lori LeHue's son, Luke, was diagnosed with a tumor of the liver.

"Anytime an organization can take away the IVs and the medication and the scars and let them be normal for the night, it means a lot to us," said LeHue.

Big shots like LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, and the rest of the team were each paired with a special survivor.

"Those kids feel like superstars when they walk down that runway and hear 1,400 people cheering for them," said Clarke.
