The Big Kids Care charity red carpet event scheduled for July 21, 2010 has made the move to the brand new XAI Verandah Lounge on Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles based Talent Management Company; ARC Talent Management is hosting this event because they are strong supporters of the SBC P.R.I.M.E. Program for at-risk youth. This event will cater to entertainment industry professionals and was previously set to take place at another well-known Hollywood Venue.
When co-owner Christina Williams was asked why she decided to make the change she said, “It was a no-brainer. Owner Nadia Fakih was so kind and supportive and so willing to help for the cause. The venue was absolutely breathtaking and the staff and food was amazing. It was obviously the right move to make for all parties involved.”
The Big Kids Care event is a 21 and over charity event benefiting the SBC P.R.I.M.E. (501c3) organization on July 21st, 2010. The event will go from 7pm-12am. Some of the scheduled performers include Madison Hill (Actress/Singer), Brittany Flickinger (Rock/R&B Singer), Amy Scruggs (Country Artist), Invinceable (Hip Hop Artist), Lil King, TJ and the Lil Mamas (America’s Got Talent) and many others. Some of the other attendees will include Camille Mana (Smart People, One on One), Patrick Gallagher (Glee, True Blood) and Rowdy Roddy Piper. Youth advocates for the event and charity include young actors Paul Butler (Sonny with a Chance, Children of the Corn) and Gabreon Womack (Lakeview Terrace, Playhouse Disney). The event will be hosted by Director/Producer Dallas King of Onyx Entertainment and actress Helenna Santos who commented on the event, “I’m 100% on board!”
The Public Service announcement for the event educating the public on the problems at-risk youth face in society was shot in Burbank, California on May 23, 2010. ARC Talent Management, SBC P.R.I.M.E., Onyx Entertainment, and industry advocates of all ages gave their time to shoot this very important message about at-risk youth. It was made available online June 21st, 2010, and can be viewed here.
