Young Hollywood celebrates City Year
Young Hollywood streamed nonstop into Sony Studios in Culver City on Saturday to celebrate the first annual "Spring Break: Destination Education," raising $1 million for City Year, which places recent graduates into L.A. schools for a year to help prevent students from dropping out.
Carnival booths offered guests auditions for E!, photos on People magazine covers and T-shirts silk-screened to order with movie titles such as "Fright Night" and "Cowboys & Aliens." Meandering amid nearly 1,000 other teens and adults were Emma Stone, Timothy Olyphant, Ashley Tisdale, Rashida Jones, Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pine, Debra Messing, James Marsden, Garrett Hedlund, Teresa Palmer, Callan McAuliffe, Eric Stonestreet, Catherine Keener, Maria Bello, Hill Harper, Lisa Kudrow, Garcelle Beauvais, Julie Bowen, Kevin McKidd, Booboo Stewart, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, Jennifer Grey and Clark Gregg.
Stacey Snider, partner and co-chairman of DreamWorks Studios, and City Year's chairman Andrew Hauptman led the fund-raising committee with members Ellen Bronfman Hauptman, Rich Battista, Laura Fox, CW Entertainment President Dawn Ostroff, NBC Broadcasting Chairman Ted Harbert and Columbia Pictures President of Production Hannah Minghella.
