More Celebrities Join Starjam Line Up

Project StarJam proudly announces that Peter Jackson, Neil Finn, Mark Inglis and Oscar Kightley will also be part of the “Stars Thru Their Eyes” event to be staged at Auckland's Sheraton Hotel on Saturday 30th of August. Neil, Mark and Oscar will appear live. Peter Jackson is a pre-recorded interview.

Stars Thru Their Eyes is a social invention of Project StarJam, staged in partnership with the Endeavour Charitable Trust, in which talented young people with disabilities go centre-stage to interview or perform with celebrities of their choice. The event features a variety of interviews, dance and musical items.

The four stars complete the stellar listing for the event. Dame Malvina Major, Tom Cruise and Lucy Lawless will star in pre-recorded interviews. Interviewed live will be celebrities including Judy Bailey, Carly Binding, Martin Crowe, Michael Galvin, Mikey Havoc, Mike King, Nesian Mystik, and Susan Wood.

"Stars Thru Their Eyes " was developed to help change attitudes towards people with disabilities. StarJam General Manager and Co-founder Julie Bartlett says the event is something out of the ordinary. The young people get to be centre-stage - and for the performers, celebrities and their audience it can be inspirational and life-changing. This is the second year “Stars Thru Their Eyes” is being held. Two events will be held in Auckland on the same day. The first is a lunch hosted by Simon Dallow and Alison Mau. A formal dinner will be hosted by John Campbell and Carol Hirschfeld.
