Stars such as Wilmer Valderrama and Esai Morales will attend a special event this weekend to raise funds to promote bilingual education.

The 2nd annual Multicultural Harmony Gala will be held at Pickwick Gardens in Burbank on March 13, and will honor Debbie Allen, as well as Peter Murrieta and his cast from the Wizards of Waverly Place, including Selena Gomez.

The event will raise funds for the Multicultural Learning Center, a bilingual (Spanish/English) charter school in the San Fernando Valley.

“I created this event to bring awareness to bilingual education by celebrating and uniting our diverse community through our children’s education,” said organizer Yeniffer Behrens. “These bilingual children are the future of America, and they are learning to be global citizens through language education. I am very proud that my son Adrian attends this magnificent school!”

Celebrity guests will include Alexa Vega (Spy Kids, Sleepover, Odd Girl Out), Yareli Arizmedi (Like Water for Chocolate, A Day Without a Mexican), Bel Hernandez (Latin Heat, Let’s Talk), Enrique Castillo (Showtime’s Weeds), Rick Najera (Nothing LIke the Holidays, Latinologues, MADtv), Asher Book (FAME), Jessie Garcia (Quinceanera), Madisen Beaty (Pregnancy Pact, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Kyle Kaplan (10 Things I Hate About You) and many more. Performers will include the Debbie Allen Dancers, a special musical piece by The Mariachi Divas and comedy by writer/performer Rick Najera.

The 2nd Annual Multicultural Harmony Gala takes place on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at Pickwick Gardens, 1001 West Riverside Drive, Burbank, CA 91506. Red carpet arrivals, VIP reception and silent auction begin at 6:30 p.m., with dinner and presentations beginning at 8:00 p.m.
