Saturday, June 22 Glacier Ice Arena in Vernon Hills will host the second annual "Skating with the Starz" to benefit the Advocate Condell Cancer Care program. Beginning at 7 p.m., attendees can once again experience an ice show extravaganza featuring nationally renowned figure skaters, including 2014 Olympic hopefuls Gracie Gold and Max Aaron.

Devised by local figure skater and Carmel High School student Jizelle Chloe Bacani, the event will offer the opportunity for the audience to skate with the "stars" following the formal program.

"Not only is this event fun for the community, but it also helps us continue to provide supportive services to cancer patients, along with advanced treatment options," said Kathleen Hill, RN, Oncology Nurse Navigator at Advocate Condell Medical Center.

General admission tickets are available for $10, and children age 3 and younger are free. Premium seating is available on the ice, with cash bar and hors d'oeuvres, for $300 per table of ten or $30 per seat. Skating time with the stars and skate rental are included in all ticket prices.

New this year, a meet and greet add-on option is available for $15. Prior to the main event, meet and greet ticketholders will have the opportunity to get an autograph and photo with Gracie Gold.

"We are proud to support such a great cause by bringing this event back to Glacier Ice Arena," comments Karen Kay Lavris, Marketing Director at Glacier Ice Arena. "We encourage anyone in the community to come, stand up with us and Condell against cancer."
