This Thursday, May 5th West Hollywood’s Bootsy Bellows hosts the 3rd annual IMAGINE BALL 2016 benefit concert, where proceeds from this event will help the Los Angeles community.
John Terzian and Randall Kaplan along with an incredible list of celebrity sponsors teamed up to bring you THE IMAGINE BALL with live performances by Natasha Bedingfield, Brave Native, Nico & Vinz, and DJ beeFOWL, and emcee by Actor/Comedian Tony Rock. Last year we watched the Madden Brothers take on the House of Blues to support Imagine LA.
The evening will bring awareness and financial support to Imagine LA, a not for profit organization dedicated to help end the cycle of family homelessness, poverty and neglect. Their Innovative Family Mentorship Program combines intensive case management, volunteer based mentorship and resources. Imagine LA’s professional staff train and guide volunteer mentor teams to help families go from barely surviving to thriving.
Past guests that have attended and supported Imagine LA and the Imagine Ball’s efforts include Kylie Jenner, Patrick Schwarzennager, Kate Beckinsale, Meta World Peace, Good Charlotte, Anne Heche, James Tupper, David Arquette, Christina McLarty, Omar Miller, Markus Molinari, and more!
