LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A Little Hope Foundation will host "A Little Hope Gala" on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at the legendary Village Studios in West Los Angeles to raise awareness and funds for its Scholarship Program that helps underprivileged students achieve higher education.
"The need for equal opportunity for our youth is very dear to me, and I am thrilled by the outpouring of support for our first event. I anticipate 'A Little Hope Gala' will be a phenomenal celebration of the work we do to bring assistance and greater awareness to the children in our communities who lack the means and tools to fulfill their life potential and become constructive members of society," said Louis Hernandez Jr., founder of A Little Hope Foundation.
The invitation-only event will be attended by influential business, media technology, education and civic leaders who share the foundation's vision to help level the playing field when it comes to attaining a higher education. An evening filled with glitz and glamour will include cocktails, dinner and dancing at the iconic Moroccan Ballroom at Village Studios. Jeff Greenberg, chief executive officer of Village Studios, is a member of the gala event committee.
A Little Hope Foundation's Scholarship Program supports the needs of underprivileged and underrepresented students from specified groups, including families of single parents and children of veterans, who seek specific educational goals in the arts, sustainability, science, technology, engineering, mathematics or education. The scholarships awarded are based on need and university selection.
"As a lifelong educator, I have taught students from lower income families and been a witness to their struggles. With the gala, I am excited to be part of a community working to raise awareness and money for students who have the ambition to obtain a college education and make a success of their lives," said Emma Lerew, Ph.D., the namesake of A Little Hope Foundation's Dr. Emma Lerew Scholarship award.
