Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 10, 2012
On Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 8 PM till Midnight, National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment (NVEEE), a Florida based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to prevent bullying, violence and suicide, will welcome entertainers, celebrities, business leaders and elected officials as they host their 2nd Annual “Not On My Watch” (NOMW) Red Carpet VIP Reception.
The fundraiser will benefit NVEEE’s “Not On My Watch” School-wide Bullying Prevention Program. Designed to initiate a systemic prevention network to reduce bullying incidents in school, this program will consist of a series of workshops and other in-school activities that will teach social skills, model specific actions, and demonstrate ways of behaving that empower students to reduce peer harassment and self-harm.
“The Not On My Watch Anti-Bullying Campaign, is a school-wide bullying prevention program now slated to be implemented in three (3) schools in South Florida for the the 2012 - 2013 year. This is a major accomplishment for NVEEE, and we did not do it alone. It came with the support of community members who are committed to safer schools and empowering youth to stand up and truly embody the change, instead of being told to change.” said Jowharah Sanders, NVEEE’s Founder and Executive Director.
Held at Highbar, atop the new Dream Hotel in South Beach, with featured co-host and honoree Marcus Lemonis, the event is to include a private acoustic set performed by Grammy Winner Scott Stapp, lead Singer of the multi-platinum rock band “CREED”; a live auction, hosted by Daisy Deadpetals, to win a private jet round trip to Bahamas courtesy of Sky Limo Air Charter; complimentary h'orderves; open bar from 8 PM till 10 PM; and music by DJ Maximus 3000.
