Los Angeles (PRWEB) February 22, 2010
New Roads School’s 15th Anniversary Celebration to be held at Smashbox Studios in Culver City, CA on Saturday, March 20, 2010, will include live musical performances by Stewart Copeland of the Police, John Densmore of the Doors, Jakob Dylan of Wallflowers, John Taylor of Duran Duran and Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli and others at the Music Festival and Expo. The “anything but another gala fundraiser” benefits the school’s break-through financial aid program that support 51% of the students each year, reflecting New Roads School’s diverse student population.
“The two main goals of the 15th Anniversary Celebration are to attract the attention of families who don’t know about New Roads School and to have an enjoyable event with all of our families,” said head of school David Bryan. “New Roads School ensures that all children have access to a stimulating and worthwhile education regardless of socio-economic status.”
Unique among private schools, New Roads School focuses on offering academic excellence to a population as diverse as Los Angeles itself. For a range of families representative of the Los Angeles demographic, the independent school is a premier college preparatory destination rooted in its focus on diversity, environmental stewardship and social justice.
“I envisioned creating an educational experience –– a collaborative project that would engage students, alumni, faculty and parents in a fun and exciting way to be shared with the entire community,” said John Taylor of his vision for the 15th Anniversary project and fundraiser
The evening portion of the event, Kaleidoscope, taking place between 6 – 10 p.m. in the same location, will honor Suzy and James Cameron with the second annual Founders Award for being prioneering visionaries who uphold the ideals and principles of New Roads School. Guest Emcee Val Kilmer will present an action-packed evening.
