City Gala 2016 – #CITYGALA

Have you heard about the City Gala event being held at the Playboy Mansion?

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.

Special guest stars like Richard Branson, who is also the KeyNote speaker and will host a moderated discussion and present inspiring videos produced exclusively for the event. Sean “Diddy” Combs will be hosting this event.

Jane Seymour and Sir Richard Branson will be sharing moderator duties and 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 shown as well.

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.

The event is held on the same night as the Grammy Awards but they are not short of attracting some really great artists who have given their time and talents to the event. I’m thrilled to be able to hob knob with them and also support the kids.

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 is even a live fashion by Hemp Blue!

As if all that isn’t enough to make you want to buy tickets to this exclusive event they are also having a live auction, which will include:

10-day Stay At Sir Richard Branson’s Private Australian Island

Mercedes Benz S63 Custom Wide Body Coupe

The event will also be honoring some really special people with awesome awards. Buzz Aldrin, will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, and John Paul Dejoria, will be accepting the Legacy Of Inspiration Award. Pretty cool, huh?

Each year City Gala produces this event with the intention of allowing its donors the ability to network with industry leaders and learn about CITY’s programs. With the excitement surrounded around the celebrities, music artists, industry leaders, and influential individuals that will attend the event the main goal for the event is benefaction, contribution, and service.

“We are honored to have such an incredible roster of distinguished guests joining us to raise visibility for these important charitable causes,” said City Gala executive producer Ryan Long.

Sponsors include Tagspire, AirVuz, JetSmarter, Seed Invest, BELLA Magazine, OK! TV, Modern Luxury Angeleno, Foreground Media, Hemp Inc., King Size LED Displays and BlairBones Media.
