Let the Kids Grow & Hooray for Hollywood High!

The Beverly Wilshire Hotel morphed into a Winter Wonderland, (complete with snow and Santa himself) when Let The Kids Grow Foundation held their recent fundraising event.  The exciting evening was hosted by Philanthropist and noted business leader, Simin Hashemizadeh; and among the honorees were award-winning actor & producer, Tyler Perry, L.A. Lakers Dwight Howard, actress Kirstie Alley, performer Nick Cannon, rapper and businessman Romeo Miller, and KPWR’s Big Boy, (to name a few).

The extremely elegant black tie evening featured special performances by Freda Payne, Reuben Cannon and Cymphonique Miller; a unique silent auction, and dinner and dancing in the magically transformed ballroom.  Kudos to Designer Kevin Lee for his innovative design.

Gorgeous Benefactor Simin Hashemizadeh stated, “I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work with the Let the Kids Grow Foundation’s Percy Miller, in supporting this amazing organization.  Our goal is to raise money through donations and scholarships to provide much needed after school facilities, and medical screening for our at-risk inner-city children.”
