2016 City Gala Event
On February 15th, 2016, City Gala is hosting one of the best charity events this year. City Gala is an event created to advocate non-profit, charitable organizations. Community Inspiring Today's Youth is the host foundation, and its mission is to offer an organized business development program and ongoing technical support for under privileged young adults of Los Angeles. The goal is to take them full circle from learning a marketable skill or service to the conclusion of the program. The desired end result being the creation of their very own, fully operational small business.
From The Heart is the financial recipient of the City Gala event and their mission is to subsidize films that are unique and make a contribution to society. These are films with gripping and powerful stories, told with passion that, without From The Heart's help, may never get made.
If the date seems familiar to you that’s because it’s on the night of the 58th Grammy Awards. Not to be outdone, City Gala will have a star studded red carpet of their own. Sean "Diddy" Combs will be hosting this event. Special guest stars like Richard Branson, who is also the Key Note speaker and will host a moderated discussion and present inspiring videos produced exclusively for the event.
Jane Seymour will host the moderated discussion alongside Sir Richard Branson and will also be celebrating her birthday! They will be discussing everything from philanthropy to the environment and the future of tomorrow.
Special videos prepared by Branson and his Virgin Galactic team will be presented as well.
Special honories will include Buzz Aldrin, who will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, and John Paul Dejoria, who will be accepting the Legacy Of Inspiration Award.
The City Gala event will include special guest appearances, live performances, and live DJ sets by Paul Oakenfold, Jeff Timmons, Chanel West Coast, Stafford Brothers, and Dj Sarah Robertson. There will also be a live fashion show by Hemp Blue!
