by Veda Curry Saturday, Dec. 03, 2011 at 9:52 PM Compassion Care Center (310) 230-5574 2614 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90018

Appeal to the community to donate gifts for the Sack Full of Dreams Time for Teens Gift Drive and event details for the annual holiday benefit concert. Sack Full of Dreams and Compassion Care Center serve at risk, homeless, and foster youth in Los Angeles County.

Los Angeles, CA – Vee Williams Entertainment in cooperation with Compassion Care Center, Inc. will present the 2nd annual Sack Full of Dreams Time for Teens Gift Drive & Benefit Concert on Sunday, December 18th at the Wilshire Grand Hotel – in Club Pointe Moorea located at 930 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90017. The event will start at 6:30pm and proceeds will go to benefit Compassion Care Center Alcohol and Drug Abuse Recovery Program and Sack Full of Dreams Non Profit Performing Arts Program. Admission to the event is with an unwrapped gift or without a gift. On Thursday, December 22, 2011 we will be holding our annual TIME FOR TEENS Christmas party for our program participants and various youth based organizations in our community.

“Toys spill over in abundance at countless toy drives throughout the city. Rarely do others remember that teens, ages 13-18, enjoy receiving gifts too” says Veda Williams Curry, CEO of Vee Williams Entertainment and Co-Founder of Sack Full of Dreams Non Profit Performing Arts. Our goal this year is to set aside a special Time for Teens and shower them with gifts, and accolades for their accomplishments as well as encouragement for those who simply need the gift of a gentle nudge to discover and step into their unlimited greatness.

In addition to handing out gifts to at-risk youth, guests will enjoy live entertainment in the form of music, spoken word/poetry and dance by several of the teens in the Sack Full of Dreams program. Stephisha and Viveca with Project F.L.O.W. (our creative writing program instructors) will recite poetry that will ignite our social awareness and call for a social change. Guests will also enjoy a special mini concert by vocal stylist, Adrien who’s R&B and Neo-Soul song selections raise issues of social awareness. Adrien Curry, is the Co-Founder of Sack Full of Dreams and uses his musical expertise to teach music production and run the music department of the program.

Sack Full of Dreams Non-Profit Performing Arts Program instills youth empowerment through the arts. From nourishing self esteem through dance, drama, poetry/spoken word and vocal lessons, youth have a voice and are encouraged to make life choices that will better their future. “The transformation that many of the youth have made as a result of the performing arts program is heartwarming,” states Curry.

Compassion Care Center Alcohol and Drug Abuse Recovery Program is an outpatient treatment center committed to assisting with life management skills and encourages lifelong recovery. Under the direction of Ms. Judy Comer, President, and Mr. Jerome Comer, Executive Director, this organization is fueled by the purpose of the Compassion Care team. Compassion Care Center is now offering the Sack Full of Dreams performing arts program at their location as part of their youth empowerment program.

Compassion Care Center is located at 2614 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016 and is open Monday– Friday from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM for gift delivery.
