About the event
Create Impact™ is launching the Use Your Bottle, Change Our World social impact campaign at the 2nd Annual Be Great! Humanitarian Awards, following the opening day of D23 Fan Expo. In celebration of Disney100 - the 100th Anniversary of the Walt Disney Corporation - special guests include a reunited cast of The ‘All New’ Mickey Mouse Club who will be featured at D23 Expo earlier in the day.
Hosted by Dr. Greg S. Reid (Author, Speaker & Founder of Secret Knock), the 2nd Annual Be Great! Awards will honor and celebrate outstanding individuals and organizations creating a positive impact on society, and who encourage all of us to Be Great!
Co-produced by social impact-based production company Be Great!, the not-for-profit event will creatively mix a magical, experiential, and immersive celebration of humanity featuring a VIP Champagne Reception, Food & Drinks, Red Carpet Photo Ops and Interviews, Live Music, presentations, the Humanitarian Awards Ceremony, and an After-party.
Reunion Mouseketeers will provide some of the evening’s entertainment, including En Vogue’s Rhona Bennett, Tony Lucca (NBC's The Voice), The Party’s Deedee Magno Hall & Chasen Hampton, and Lindsey Alley's hilarious multi-media show, "Blood, Sweat, and Mouseketears."
Chosen from over 100 nominations, Be Great! selectively honors approximately 20 Humanitarians each year.
