Chris Kirkpatrick does good after NSync!

Chris Kirkpatrick and his foundation, The Chris Kirkpatrick Foundation, partnered with The Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families for 2 major fundraising Halloween events that took place in Orlando, Florida over the last few weekends. The events were The Mask Car AID Bash and the Halloween SPOOKTACULAR.

Chris Kirkpatrick, founding member of *NSYNC, along with former band-mates Lance Bass and Joey Fatone, Orlando Magic, Wesley Jonathan, Denyce Lawton and others attended. Both fundraising events celebrating classic Halloween fun focused on raising money for children in need for the Chris Kirkpatrick Foundation whose mission is to enhance the lives of under-privileged children throughout the United States.

Says Kirkpatrick, “I am thrilled to host these Halloween events for my foundation and to have my friends join me in my fundraising efforts which will allow me to continue to create life changing opportunities geared toward enhancing the lives of children through health care, educational and developmental programs.”

I'm hoping we'll hear more from Chris in a future blog post!

Hi Lisa--what a great site! It's encouraging to see so many celebrities using their influence for good. I was just looking into the Somaly Mam Foundation and wanted to mention Susan Sarandon to you. She's become very involved with the issue of child trafficking and calling for its end. She sits on the board and recently accompanied Somaly Mam herself to get the word out on the Tyra Banks show. Just wanted to drop you a note, and thanks again for the uplifting posts.
