Survive This: Warriors Games on September 10

If you are a fan of the hit TV shows Survivor or Amazing Race, then you have just hit the competition/reality TV lottery because you will be able to meet many of your favorite former players in Dallas at a charity benefit hosted by Cheer 4 Your Life next weekend. The 2nd Annual “It’s A Jungle Out There” benefit will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016. This year, the event is being expanded to add the Warriors Games, a NEW family-friendly aspect which held on the grounds of the Embassy Suites Love Field Hotel. Attendees will be able to watch teams comprised of former players from Survivor (other reality TV shows) and young adults from Cheer 4 Your Life’s teen Warrior program compete in challenges similar to those seen on the show. Get ready for twists and turns (and maybe a merger) as the games progress until the last player is left standing and is crowned the sole Survivor. Tickets are $10-$20. That evening, Event Chairs Leslie Madden and Laura Powell will gather with adult supporters at the Frontiers of Flight Museum for the 2nd Annual “It’s A Jungle Out There” benefit which will include a concert, dinner, silent and live auction. The doors to the Frontiers of Flight Museum will open to the public at 6:30pm. A private VIP Red Carpet cocktail party for upper level sponsors will take place from 6:30-7:30pm in the upper mezzanine of the Museum. Guests will begin the evening with dinner and live entertainment from talented teens from area Performing Arts High Schools, Competitive Club Cheerleading and Dance programs, and Acrobatic troupes. The evening will culminate with a performance from rising Country music star, Hudson Moore. Leave the stilettos at home and wear anything from a sundress to dressy shorts and a fancy camo top with sandals or sneakers. Anything that screams “jungle chic” will help you to look the part at this benefit.Tickets start at $150.
