Hollywood Film Awards Does Some Good – Artists For Peace and Justice

HollywoodNews.com: Artists for Peace and Justice offer exclusive opportunity to dine with Hollywood A-Listers thanks to Hollywood Film Awards’ Hollywood Gives Back(r).

Ten tables up for grabs for star-studded Hollywood Film Awards® with 100% of proceeds benefiting Haiti’s school system through the Academy for Peace and Justice Los Angeles, California. On October 22, 2012,120 individuals will not only have the exclusive privilege of attending the Hollywood Film Awards®, but by attending, they will be making a difference in the future of children in Haiti.

Through the Hollywood Gives Back(r) initiative, the Hollywood Film Awards® have generously donated ten tables to Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ). Purchasers of the 12 seat tables will wine and dine with Hollywood’s A-list crowd, with 100% of the funds raised from table sales contributed for the construction of a new wing at the Academy for Peace and Justice in Port-au-Prince.

“Currently more than half of Haiti’s population is illiterate, but with the Academy for Peace and Justice, we are working to change the statistics,” said Oscar-winning filmmaker and Artists For Peace and Justice Founder, Paul Haggis. “We are so grateful for The Hollywood Film Awards initiative which is an incredibly generous gift that will support both the education system and the country’s future.”

Created to honor excellence in the art of filmmaking, the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards® is a prestigious celebration of the motion picture art form. The launch event of Hollywood’s award season, the celebrity-attended Hollywood Film Awards® Gala Ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel is a night of true star-studded glamor.

Committed to bringing together established Hollywood celebrities and the global creative community, discovering talented emerging filmmakers, and honoring Hollywood’s finest established professionals, The Hollywood Awards® draws more than 1,000 guests. Prior Hollywood Awards events have included stars such as Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, Halle Berry, Orlando Bloom, Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Glenn Close, Penelope Cruz, Viola Davis, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Colin Farrell, Harrison Ford, Jodie Foster, Jamie Foxx, Richard Gere, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Ron Howard, Janet Jackson, Angelina Jolie, George Lucas, Rachel McAdams, Brad Pitt, Christopher Plummer, Keanu Reeves, Susan Sarandon, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Charlize Theron, John Travolta, Naomi Watts, Michelle Williams, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, among many others.

APJ is an organization dedicated to encouraging peace and social justice, while addressing issues of poverty in the poorest communities in Haiti through programs focused on education, health and dignity.
While APJ has made many contributions to the earthquake-devastated country, the nation’s first free secondary school- the Academy for Peace and Justice, is one of the most significant yet.

“It took 1,000 locals only a few months to build the first permanent wing of the Academy for Peace and Justice. It already serves 800 of the poorest kids in Port-au-Prince,” said Paul Haggis, APJ founder and Academy Award-winning filmmaker. “The state-of-the-art earthquake safe school was built by the people of Haiti for the people of Haiti.”

Construction at the school has just begun on the new wing for an additional 800 students who will enroll next September, and by 2014, the Academy will provide life changing, free education to 3000 students. Each student enrolled at the institution receives a full scholarship, which includes tuition, uniforms, access to free medical care. In addition, a nutritious meal is provided by APJ partner, the World Food Program.
