BENEFITING: Artists Striving To End Poverty Inc
EVENT DATE: Oct 24, 2014
"Art has the power to change the world." Mary-Mitchell Campbell, ASTEP Founder
Award-winning Broadway, movie and television performer Raúl Esparza has thrilled his fans with his talent and inspired us through his personal commitment to giving back to the community. To honor his generosity of time and spirit, we are coming together to help one of his favorite organizations, Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP) http://asteponline.org/2013/ourstory/.
The mission of ASTEP is "to connect performing and visual artists with underserved youth in the U.S. and around the world to awaken their imaginations, foster critical thinking, and help them break the cycle of poverty." The work of ASTEP reverberates throughout the lives of the children they serve and their communities.
If you are a fan of Raúl's work, please join us in honoring this organization that means so much to him. And if you are not familiar with the full range of his talent, here's an example from the 2006 Broadway revival of Company, for which he earned one of his four Tony nominations: http://bit.ly/barbasings
