The Annual Summer Spectacular benefitting The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention, brought out Hollywood stars and industry elite to help raise awareness for drug prevention in high-risk communities on September 22 at the Beverly Hilton. The invite-only gala was hosted by Eva Longoria along with foundation creators Robert, Linell and Grant Shapiro. Guests including Evan Ross, Harry Hamlin, Nicole Scherzinger, Adrienne Maloof, Sugar Ray Leonard and Katy Hilton, and more were treated to musical performances by Sheila E. and Pia Toscano.
During the Summer Spectacular, foundation creators Robert and Linell Shapiro presented three full ride college scholarships and ten $5000 college scholarships to members of Brent’s Club, its educational drug prevention program, for successfully completing high school without failing a drug test. The foundation and its signature Brent’s Club program seek to build strong educational and social communities in some of L.A.’s most socioeconomically challenged neighborhoods to offer positive alternatives to drug use.
