Cruise & schmooze with soap stars during 2017 SoapFest Charity Weekend
Spending a few days in the Florida sun with the stars of daytime.
Planning for the Annual SoapFest Charity Weekend is underway and this year fans will gather with various soap opera stars from Friday May 26, 2017 through Monday May 29, 2017 in Marco Island, Florida. So far, daytime stars set to attend include “Days of our Lives’” Melissa Archer (Serena), “General Hospital’s” Brytni Sarpy (Valerie), Donnell Turner (Curtis) and Robert Palmer Watkins (Dillon) and “The Young and the Restless’” Kate Linder (Esther), Jeff Branson (Ronan), Christian LeBlanc (Michael) and Sean Carrigan (Stitch).
The event lineup will kick off on Friday with a private party for sponsors only at 7:00 PM, where guests will be welcomed at a private home. Tickets are limited.
On Saturday fans will join the actors at 7:00 PM for ‘A Night of Stars’ up close and personal VIP event, which will include autograph signings, photos, Q&A sessions and live auctions. Take note, this event is always a favorite and sells out fast.
Sunday’s ‘Cruisin’ Boozin’ & Schmoozin’ sets sail at 12:00 PM aboard a yacht for three-hours of fun with the stars. Fans will get to mix and mingle during the fabulous sight-seeing adventure, as dolphins play in the water along Marco Island’s beautiful coastline. Signed scripts, iconic clothing, jewelry and much more will be raffled off as everyone enjoys brunch. Later that night, the fun continues with the ‘Celebrity Karaoke Bar Bash’ – an after-party where fans and stars unite to raise money for kids while belting out their favorite tunes.
Finally, the long weekend wraps up on Monday to say goodbye during ‘Brunch with the Boys’, which begins at 12:00 PM, and is available to sponsors and donors only.
