The benefit will support:
- 2,500 inner-city youth so that they will experience during the 3-day project what youth across America say gave them “reason to live,” Josh Tickell's movie, FUEL. They will also participate in a celebrity facilitated Q and A designed to meet youth learning needs.
The project begins with a Green Carpet event Tuesday evening of April 28th at San Antonio's new Paalladium VIP Theater upstairs. There, South Texas leaders and celebrities will gather for an exclusive screening of "FUEL" and a celebrity Q and A followed by culinary delights and a silent auction of highly prized sports memorabilia in the luxurious Mezanine Lounge.
