Tyra Banks, Debra Martin Chase and Silvio Horta to receive the "I Have a Dream(R) Foundation "Dream Keeper" Award this Sunday, January 28th.
Congratulations to Tyra Banks; Debra Martin Chase (producer of The Princess Diaries and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Executive Producer of The Cheetah Girls), and Silvio Horta (Executive Producer of Ugly Betty) will receive this year’s annual “I Have a Dream”® Foundation – Los Angeles’ “Dream Keeper Award.” The “Dream Keeper Award” is presented annually to members of the community who share the foundation’s vision of a strong commitment to mentor and foster the academic development of at risk children in Los Angeles . The recipients of the “Dream Keeper Awards” are celebrated, as well as the honor and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose words inspired the “I Have a Dream” movement.
I Have a Dream Foundation - Los Angeles (www.ihadla.org) has helped fulfill the academic dreams for over 1,000 Dreamers, sponsored students, in the Los Angeles area since it was founded in 1987. IHAD-LA “adopts” an entire first grade class in an area of the city where the dropout rate approaches 60% and provides that class with free, year-round academic and cultural programs, mentoring and tutoring from first through twelfth grades when Dreamers become eligible for college scholarships.
