Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) July 24, 2007
The infamous Joe Jackson, Father and founder of The Jacksons (including Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson), will be holding a celebrity filled birthday party, and after party, this week. This is not just a party, but a tribute to the legendary Joseph Jackson, celebrating the many decades of contributions Mr. Jackson has contributed to the music and entertainment industry.
We have a fun filled night planned for Mr. Jackson and his guests, starting with cocktails, followed by dinner, live performances, and speeches from many entertainers influenced by Mr. Jackson. There will also be a silent auction of many items, donated by celebrity friends and family. All proceeds from this event will be donated to The Lisa Lopes Foundation. Mr. Jackson would like to bring awareness of the foundation, founded in honor of the late Lisa Lopes, of phenomenally successful girl group, TLC, who, tragically, died in a car accident back in April, 2005.

Information on the Lisa Lopes Foundation
The Lisa Lopes Foundation (LLF) was started in 2005 by Lisa's mother, Wanda Lopes-Colemon, her brother, Ronald Lopes, and family friend Anashay Murphy. The Foundation was inspired by Lisa's dream of building a children's home on some land she purchased in Honduras. Shortly after revealing her plans to her family, Lisa passed away in an auto accident in Honduras. The family did not have the financial means to make Lisa's dream come true, so they established the Lisa Lopes Foundation to bring her dream to fruition. 4 years later they opened up Lisa's Hogar De Amor (Home of Love) - a 10,000 sq. ft. residential facility with a dental clinic and classroom for the kids. Presently there are 20 orphaned children living there, with an additional 20 attending class there. Many of the children who live there have lost there parents to HIV and/or have been victims of sexual and physical abuse. The ages of the kids range from 2 - 15 years old. The goal of Lisa's Hogar De Amor is to provide a safe and loving environment for the children, as well as providing free education, and healthcare. There are also plans to start enrichment programs to teach them to be self sufficient and career oriented. Future goals of LLF include building a larger school and medical clinic outside of the Hogar - an organic garden, a volunteer house, and a play area.
LLF also works with teens from low income communities in Georgia. They go through a five-step program: Cultural Arts and Awareness, Healthy Lifestyles, Financial Literacy, Career development and Civic and Social responsibility. The program is designed to give these teens a step up in this competitive world and an increasing sense of self worth.
