Actor/Producer/Director/Humanitarian Scott L. Schwartz helped raise over $40k at this month’s Alicia’s House 8th Annual Celebrity Golf Outing, Dinner and Silent Auction.
Scott was one of the celebrity special guests at Chicagoland Expo in Carol Stream, IL, and while in town he helped hand out food to the needy at Alicia's House Food Pantry. The pro-wrestler also visited the Ronald McDonald House and several Children’s Hospitals.
Although he is known as the “Ultimate Bad Guy” from his work in films such as Ocean’s 11, 12 & 13, Starsky & Hutch, Fun With Dick And Jane, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Star Trek Voyager and many more feature films, Scott exhibits a caring side off-screen. He started visiting children’s hospitals worldwide after losing his sister to lung cancer in 1998. The tragic experience showed him the value and impact in making a lasting impression on children with cancer and how important it is to make each child feel special and cared about.
Scott enjoys handing out food to the needy, visiting the cancer centers and bringing what joy he can into the lives of every child he visits, they are always smiling when he leaves the rooms and usually begging him to return soon.
Scott L. Schwartz Children's Foundation is under way with upcoming appearances from Scott and events for children of all ages. On November 20, 2010 Scott will host a Celebrity Cupcake Event for charity in Los Angeles, CA. He plans to make a difference in the lives of each child in need by continuing to visit hospitals worldwide.
