Wigs & Wishes
Wigs and Wishes is an annual event hosted by celebrity hair stylist Martino Cartier and the organization he launched, Friends Are by Your Side. The goal of the organization is to restore dignity to women who lost their hair to chemotherapy by providing them with beautifully-styled wigs. It is so much more than wigs, though. Friends Are by Your Side also grants wishes to children and families who are truly in need of a miracle. Each year, Starlite provides all the production support for the Wigs and Wishes event to ensure that the message of this very worthy cause is heard and seen clearly. An LED video wall with satellite 80” LED displays flanking the stage provide the backdrop along with full HD IMAG and engineering with video playback. The event requires all hands-on deck to complete two stages each with its own robust lighting and audio system for the one-day load-in, show, and out. The event has featured performances by Liv Divine, Paula Abdul, and Reuben Studdard.
