“You never know who our future leaders are going to be, who is going to create the next technology to change our world.”
On Tuesday night at E.P. & L.P. restaurant in Los Angeles, Lil Jon kicked off the new initiative from Pencils of Promise, donating his birthday to help build a school in an impoverished area. Starting off with a cocktail reception on the second floor, guests were treated to a hosted bar along with an opportunity to experience in VR the short minute and a half clip (produced in collaboration with RYOT) of a classroom in a developing country.
Around 8:15 p.m., guests were seated for a complete dinner along with words from Lil Jon on why he donated to PoP, as well as a few remarks from retired All-American football player and board member Lewis Howes. Notable names in attendance included singer Usher, manager Scooter Braun and SKAM Artist Inc. founder and CEO Sujit Kundu.
