The Feb. 15 event will be hosted by former 98 Degrees member Jeff Timmons.
Call it a Grammys afterparty.
Community Inspiring Today’s Youth (CITY) -- a nonprofit that supports and mentors underserved teens and young adults in developing their own small businesses in L.A. -- has booked the Playboy Mansion for its second City Gala Fundraiser, scheduled for Feb. 15, immediately following the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
Sir Richard Branson, the billionaire founder of Virgin Group, will deliver the keynote address with former 98 Degrees pop star Jeff Timmons handling hosting duties. The invitation-only, black tie fundraiser will feature live musical entertainment, a charitable poker tournament, tours of the Playboy Mansion grounds, celebrity meet-and-greets and a live silent auction. (With the Playboy Mansion up for sale, it's surely one of the more in-demand locations in town.) Sponsors of the event include JetSmarter and AirVuz.
