It's hard to believe but according to Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), 50% of the 535 elementary schools in the district are not receiving arts education due to budget cuts. You can help turn this around, by getting up off that couch for a night and attend the upcoming 'Peace Through Music Gala' this Sunday, September 15, at the Loews Hollywood Hotel. The event will take place from 5-11 pm at Wolfgang Puck's Ray Dolby Ballroom and will be featuring performances by Macy Gray & Slash. The event will also have a live auction with items donated by A-list celebrities. The red-carpet gala will boasts performances by Matt Sorum and Shehzad Roy with appearances by Jane Lynch, Mark McGrath, Danny Masterson, Johnathan Schaech and many more.
All proceeds will benefit both Adopt the Arts & the Zindago Trust and will help bring more music and the arts to schools in both Los Angeles & Pakistan.
