The Fifth Annual National Love Our Children Day was held at Spotlight Live in New York City. The event chaired by Elisabeth Hasselbeck (The View) and hosted by Cameron Mathison (All My Children, Dancing With The Stars, EXTRA, So You Want To Be A Soap Star) was attended by 300 of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut's families.
Celebrities Meredith Vieira (Today Show), Ashleigh Banfield (Hollywood Heat), Frank Grillo (Blind Justice, Prison Break), Yvonna Wright (Guiding Light), Tobias Truvillion (One Life To Live), The DEY, and the New Menudo who performed, attended the event ... but the big stars were the children and the smiles on their faces.
An initiative of Love Our Children USA, this special day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday of every April to honor children, strengthen families and raise awareness for efforts to keep children safe. Each year the day is recognized with a proclamation from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
National Love Our Children Day is like Mother's and Father's Day for children and is celebrated across the U.S. This day was created to acknowledge the value of children and to educate parents on the importance of giving them love, protection and respect, the three essential elements children need to become strong and successful adults. By promoting healthy and happy children and strengthening families through the support of our nation’s communities, we can keep kids safe.
