Multimedia Superstars Bow Wow and Omarion partners with Entertainers 4 Education Alliance for a Holiday event for students with passing grades.
NEW YORK, NY Since its inception Entertainers 4 Education Alliance (E4EA) has become one of the leading organization encouraging youth to choose education. The organization which officially launched just one short year ago has presented numerous events in 2007 all geared toward encouraging students to stay in school and make smart choices. As 2007 comes to a close Entertainers 4 Education Alliance wanted to reward students who did exceptionally well or made significant improvements academically with a special holiday event. Entertainers 4 Education Alliance was very fortunate to partner with multi-media superstars Bow Wow and Omarion for this holiday event. In addition, rising star and label mate Tiffany Evans will be in attendance and contribute a performance. Presented by, Columbia Records, HOT 97 and educational partner Catapult Online over 500 students will attend this event on Monday December 10th 2007 at an undisclosed location.
Just off the heals of the Annual Stay In School Concert event October 17th 2007 co-founder and CEO of Entertainers 4 Education Alliance Tonya Lewis said “We received numerous phone calls, emails and letters from principals teachers and counselors informing us that our incentive based message is reaching students and that our program is definitely working. It is simple, if the students want to have an opportunity to see their favorite celebrities they must work hard. We wanted to reward those who have made the greatest improvement with this holiday event. We are very grateful to Bow Wow, Omarion, Tiffany Evans, Columbia Records and our official radio partner HOT 97 FM for helping us make this event happen.”
Bow Wow and Omarion are taking time out of their busy promotional tour of their new album entitled R20; Face Off R21; to get up close and personal with students. The two mega stars will congratulate students on their hard work and encourage them to follow their dreams, make smart choices, stay focused and most importantly stay in school. Bow Wow and Omarion will encourage students through their personal struggles and testimonies. Students will have the opportunity to ask Bow Wow and Omarion questions, get autographs and take pictures.
“Education is the greatest gift for a child. Giving us an opportunity to encourage students to work hard is rewarding for us” commented Bow Wow.
Omarion stated “We are blessed to be able to give back and the Entertainers 4 Education Alliance Organization is the perfect way to do that”.
In addition to rewarding the students for their achievements this event will be used to collect toys for needy children through Toys 4 Tots. Columbia Records is leading the giving with a toy donation. E4EA is asking attending students to bring toys for needy children.
