The 2nd Annual Night With The Friends of El Faro Fundraiser will take place this Saturday (May 8) in Santa Monica at the Barker Hangar (at the Santa Monica airport). The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards is held at the Barker Hangar each year, as well as past MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards.
The $100-a-person concert fundraiser is being hosted by Celebrities and Entertainers, joining together to help raise urgently needed funds for the Children of Casa Hogar El Faro 2 Orphanage in Tijuana, Baja California.
This year's charity event includes performances by several musician-actors including Sheryl Crow (co-star of next month's MGM movie De-Lovely with Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd), Dwight Yoakam (Slingblade and Panic Room), Vonda Shepard ("Ally McBeal") and violinist Lili Haydn (Jack Frost). Food and drinks will be provided by local restaurants and merchants.
Proceeds will benefit the Casa Hogar El Faro 2 (The Lighthouse) Orphanage located in Tijuana, Baja California. Casa Hogar El Faro 2 is home to 100 children (ages ranging from birth to 18-years old) and is in dire need of financial support to provide the basic necessities for its children -- nutritional food, adequate water, and sanitation.
