CLEVELAND– It was a change of scenery for the NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday as they hosted the “Big Shots Little Stars” fundraiser.

More than a thousand of Northeast Ohio’s business and community leaders attended the event at Quicken Loans Arena.

Guests were treated to a full reception followed by the best part of the night. That’s when Cavs players accompany pediatric cancer survivors as they walked the runway.

It creates sweet and memorable moments like shooting guard J.R. Smith showing off his dance moves and center Tristan Thompson sharing a special handshake.

“When you look at how the community has been so good to us, our organization, it’s just natural to give back,” Cavs legend Austin Carr said.

“Big Shots Little Stars” benefits Flashes of Hope and the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
