A very special performance of The Who's classic rock opera “Tommy”, benefiting the Elevate Hope Foundation, will take place on Thursday, June 19, at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Hollywood. This will be the first appearance of the theatrical production of “Tommy” in Los Angeles in a decade.
Founded by Sheila E., the Elevate Hope Foundation raises funds to help assist victims of child abuse and abandonment through music and the arts. This special performance will assist in developing a more comprehensive Arts Enrichment Program for Vista Del Mar Child & Family Services, which provides 45 programs to nearly 6,000 children and families. Their goal is to provide educational and therapeutic services to families and children suffering from mental, behavioral and emotional challenges. Vista Del Mar’s therapeutic residential program provides services to youth – aged 12-18 – who have been moved from home to home due to such behaviors as aggressive outbursts and suicidal tendencies that are beyond what the foster parents can handle. Vista Del Mar is committed to providing these youth the best care possible.
