This Thanksgiving, Actor/Producer/Director/Humanitarian Scott L. Schwartz returned Knoxville, TN to decorate and donate his very own custom “Hollywood” themed tree at the “Fantasy Of Trees” to benefit East Tennessee Children’s Hospital (ETCH). While Scott was in town he visited the children at ETCH as well as Carter High School kids and even had time for a quick photo with Principal Siebe. Scott also returned to WBIR to visit Russel Bivens on Live At Five At Four.

This was by far the "most popular tree" at the event- as all the guests were stopping to take photos at the tree valued over $1,800.00.

The Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation “Hollywood” themed tree received gifts and support from the following sponsors: Wendi Russo (ShopHQ host), Rick Finkelstein (CEO/Exec Producer at Entertainment Factory, LLC), Juan Hernandez (Executive of Alicia’s House Food Pantry), among others...

The Fantasy of Trees has been a holiday tradition in East Tennessee since 1985. In 2013, the 29th annual event showcased a theme of "Christmas on Main Street." All proceeds from admission ticket sales, children's activities and designer sales at the Fantasy of Trees benefit Children's Hospital. Official website.

Scott L. Schwartz is widely known as the “Ultimate Bad Guy” from his acting career including: Ocean’s 11, 12 & 13, Starsky & Hutch, Spiderman, Fun With Dick And Jane, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Mentalist, Castle, among other feature films and TV shows. What most fans don’t know is that Scott is really “The Ultimate Nice Guy” and has been visiting children’s hospitals worldwide for the past 15 years after losing his sister to lung cancer in 1998. He realizes the value and impact of making a lasting impression on children with cancer and how important it is to make each child feel special. Scott enjoys visiting pediatric hospitals and bringing what joy he can into the lives of every child he visits. They are always smiling during his visits and usually begging him to return soon.

The Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation is making a difference in the lives of each child in need by continuing to visit hospitals worldwide, helping Alicia’s House Food Pantry, Children’s Hospitals Worldwide. For the past ten years Scott has been an essential part of the fundraising for Alicia’s House Food Pantry along with former Chicago Cubs pitcher Milt Pappas and the founder (former pro wrestler) Juan Hernandez. Scott recently accepted the CHOC Glass Slipper Guild Award (a prestigious award that others that David Beckham, Gwen Stefani among others have received). On May 21, 2013 Scott was invited by General Mills to be an Ambassador for Outnumber Hunger. Outnumber Hunger partners with Feeding America and Big Machine Label Group to help Feeding America secure meals on behalf of local food bank. Scott will show his support through raising awareness with his fans about Outnumber Hunger and the staggering issue of hunger in America.
