About The Witness To A Dream Foundation:
WTAD Foundation enables inner city at risk public school children to meet individuals who are willing to take the time and put forward the effort to inspire them to greatness through mentoring. Mentors are provided with the WTAD Mentoring System™ – enabling them to be part of the community solution that will encourage students to live and succeed in a life beyond the inner city. The children are given all the reasons and tools they will ever need to stay in school, avoid pregnancy, discover their biggest dreams, identify a career path, and graduate from high school.
About the Terry Brand Book Scholarship:
Terry Brand was a great mentor to many and a board member for Witness To A Dream. A kind and generous man, Terry enjoyed teaching people and caring for people. Terry passed away much too soon on March 17th, 2010, but his memory will live on. For most students, paying for schoolbooks can be very costly and sometimes impossible. Because Terry was an avid reader, the recipient of this scholarship will be provided with every book they need throughout their college education.
About Branded Art Events:
Branded Art Events takes the world of art in a new direction, showcasing a plethora of emerging artists from the blossoming LA art scene alongside many reputable and established artists, creating an eclectic mix of all types. Live music, painting demonstrations, raffles, installations, murals, and many more interactive activities all contribute to first class entertainment events. Branded Art is thrilled to be contributing to, and collaborating with the Witness To A Dream Foundation.
