The event included both silent and live auctions featuring original art work by students of the school; and the presentation of 20 new ESP electric/acoustic guitars, donated to the school by the Traveling Guitar Foundation.
Celebrities who attended the event included Beatz’ wife, singer, Alicia Keys; rappers, Rick Ross, Big Sean and French Montana; TV personality and actress, La La Vasquez; NBA Knicks star, Carmelo Anthony; BET’s 106 & Park host, Rocsi Diaz; singer, Melanie Fiona; and New York Giants players, Jason Pierre Paul and Terrell Thomas.
Funds raised at the event will support the South Bronx school’s academic intervention programs—which provide additional support for struggling learners—and enrichment programs, such as the Bronx Arts Band and Dance Team.
