Glee star Max Adler will be special guest for the event. Recently named official International Spokesperson for City Hearts, he began the year by initiating the The Max’s ABC: Anti-Bullying through City Hearts Initiative, raising over $20,000 through an e-Campaign and a matching grant of $5,000 from the Frieda.C.Fox Foundation. Winners of the draw for “Lunch with Max” will attend the event. Max was also the winner of the Community TechKnowledge’s “Vote for a Hero” competition and a representative from the foundation will be present to award Max the check.
This is a free community event showcasing the work of over 200 students from Los Angeles’ inner city communities who have participated in City Hearts’ Arts programming in Shakespeare, Dance and Photography. Students will kick off the day competing in the Shakespeare Challenge, performing scenes and monologues in front of a panel of judges and attending audience members. The afternoon’s activities will feature student recitals and a photography exhibition.
