The Give Back Event

The Give Back LUEIt’s ya’ girl Ms. LUE and this week this is “What It Do”! I would like to highlight an important event happening in our city this Saturday, April 12. Blaim Society Nation presents: “The Give Back”.  A local community event giving back to the city of San Bernardino, hosted by Slappers on Deck, Heartbreak, and Roc Star BBZ.

In light of all the recent killings, community members young and old are fed up! Several entities have come together to take a stand against VIOLENCE through the sound of music. The event will take place this Saturday, April 12 at Wildwood Park on the corner of 40th street and Waterman Avenue in San Bernardino from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Event coordinator, professional boxer and Mixed Martial Arts Fighter, Trevaugn Moore stated that, “A great community event featuring a positive movement for the city of San Bernardino including all ages from the past, present, and future is needed. Too much negativity has been spread throughout our city long enough. It’s now time for something positive to come about. This is a start to stop the violence, killings, and corruption in our city.”

The day will consist of performances from local artists and artists from surrounding cities. Families will be able to participate in the free activities, food, and fun. There will be special appearances by professional UFC Fighters, World Class Boxing coaches, and Boxers. Please jump in the fight and help promote and bring PEACE to the City of San Bernardino. Until next time take care and let someone know how much you care. The world needs more LOVE!

LOS ANGELES, CA- Wells Fargo Education Financial Services and First Generation Films recently  kicked-off the “Go College!” tour, a national education initiative launching in Los Angeles with screenings of the award-winning documentary First Generation at six Los Angeles Unified School District high schools and culminated with a red-carpet screening at L.A. Live. Go College! Los Angeles was the first of 70 film screenings and a 10-city tour bringing together filmmakers, educators, subject matter experts, civic and community leaders for panel discussions to encourage a national conversation on how students and parents can make attending college a reality.

Filmed over the course of three years, the First Generation documentary is narrated by two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Blair Underwood and explores the problem of college access faced by first generation and low income students. The documentary profiles the journey of four students attempting to break the cycle of poverty and bring hope to their communities as they pursue their college dreams.

The Go College! tour features free screenings for students and educators at local high schools and other locations in select cities. At each screening attendees will have the opportunity to engage the filmmaking team of Adam and Jaye Fenderson, cast members, Wells Fargo private student lending experts and local educational leaders in a dialogue focused on how to make attending college a reality. Free information packets on college application processes, scholarship opportunities, tips to estimate college costs, and how to capitalize on various funding sources to pay for college will be provided at all screenings.

Go College! next tour stops include Las Vegas, Phoenix, Oakland and Washington DC in Spring 2014. In Fall 2014, the campaign will visit the cities of Atlanta, Miami, Minneapolis, Houston, and Dallas. For tour information, please visit www.FirstGenerationFilm.com/gocollege.
