The event will take place on October 10 at HD BUTTERCUP at 3225 Helms Avenue, LA.
Since its inception, The Art of Elysium has provided artistic workshops in the following disciplines: acting, art, comedy, fashion, music, radio, songwriting and creative writing and their results have been astounding; producing a mutual exchange of hope and appreciation between both children in need, as well as, the artists themselves.
The Art of Elysium holds their annual HEAVEN gala on the eve of the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, CA and is supported by corporate sponsors that have included Cartier, Vogue, Ford and Relativity Media. The 2009 gala was their biggest success to date and raised over $1,000,000 for the organization, as well as, receiving more than 197,500,000 media impressions in major publications throughout the world. Guests included Sting, Golden Globe nominee Marisa Tomei, Kirsten Dunst, Eva Mendes and Tobey Maguire among others. In addition to HEAVEN, The Art of Elysium hosted its first annual PARADIS at the Cannes Film Festival this past May sponsored again by Cartier & Relativity Media as well as Soho House and Grey Goose. The event was incredibly well attended by industry insiders as well as by Cannes jury member Robin Wright Penn and festival darling Quentin Tarantino.
