Celebrities and political leaders will join hundreds of other volunteers to help serve the nearly 3,000 kids and their families who will attend. Among those expected to attend are Hilary Duff (Bloodworth), Charlotte Ross (Glee), Katie Blair (Miss California USA 2011), Angie Everhart (Take Me Home Tonight), Brandon Molale (True Blood), Parris Mostellar (Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer), Ty Paintz (How to Eat Fried Worms), Lauren Storm (I Love You Beth Cooper), Savannah Jayde (Big Time Rush), Kellie Goss (Big Time Rush), Tucker Albrizi (Alvin and the Chipmunks), Allisyn Ashley Arm (Meet Dave), Paige Adkins (Cuttin’ Da Mustard), REBORN (Gospel Artist), Oren Williams (Lincoln Heights), Zachary Williams (Lincoln Heights), Justin Tinnicci (Big Love), Lauren Dair Owens (Kids Quest) and others.
The event will feature a giant street fair for children with food, games, prizes, crafts, face painting, bounce houses, giant inflatable slide and more. Children who live in the area will have a day of carefree summer fun at the Los Angeles Mission’s Annual End of Summer Block Party.
Families who receive backpacks won’t have to decide between food and school supplies for their children. The Los Angeles Mission, along with City National Bank, US Bank, Blessings in a Backpack and Hilary Duff, Jackson Hewitt, Buck Consultants and many others make the event possible.
The End of Summer Block Party gives children who experience fear, hunger, health issues and stress on a daily basis a chance to spend the day just being a kid!
The Block Party takes place at the Los Angeles Mission, 303 East 5th Street (on the corner of 5th and Wall Street), Los Angeles, CA 90013 on Saturday, August 27, 2011, 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
