On May 18, 2010 the U.S. Dream Academy will hold its 9th Annual Power of a Dream Gala entitled, “Dream America,” to benefit their nationally recognized after-school programs. The event will be held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (1150 22nd Street NW) in downtown Washington, D.C. (VIP reception – 6:00 p.m., Awards Gala – 7:00 p.m.).
Each year the Gala attracts some of Hollywood’s top celebrities, corporate executives, and VIPs, as well as political and community leaders who support and invest in the future of those children most at risk. The annual event also honors those who are making a difference in young people’s lives with their philanthropic efforts.
This year’s honorees include Dan Rather (“CBS Evening News”), actress Angela Bassett, and Dr. Bernice A. King (daughter of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). Actor/comedian Chris Tucker will host. Emmy Award-winning actor Charles S. Dutton will serve as the keynote speaker. Academy Award-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr. and Jonathan Mariner (CFO of Major League Baseball) will serve as the Gala co-Chairs. VIP guests will include; Members of Congress, and NFL veterans, Rick Doc Walker and Darrell Green, amoung many others.
A night full of entertainment is scheduled with a performance from teen sensation Charice. This young star first came to notoriety when Oprah gave her the opportunity to sing with Celine Dion, and now she is quickly becoming an international star who will be featured on Ellen and Oprah this month to debut her first album.
