LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--R&B JAAMZS, Inc. President Rob Schiller, an Emmy-award winning Hollywood director and producer, continues a long-standing family heritage of corporate philanthropy, supporting causes for health and human services, arts and entertainment, local and national political fundraising, and public education. With the challenges of today’s economic environment, Schiller renewed his commitment to helping organizations that provide critical services to those in need.
Schiller’s most recent philanthropic activities included supporting the 14th Annual DesignCare event and the United Cerebral Palsy 14th Annual Devon Stern Golf Tournament that Schiller co-founded with three colleagues.
DesignCare was hosted by Actress Holly Robinson Peete and former NFL quarterback husband Rodney Peete, where Schiller was among 500 VIP guests and donors who enjoyed musical performances by Natalie Cole, Luke James and music director Ricky Minor, and a fashion show featuring designer Sue Wong, to benefit those living with Autism and Parkinson’s disease. Honorees Gerald L. Storch, of Toys “R” Us, former NBA star Brian Grant, and Zev Glassenberg and Justin Kanew of “Amazing Race,” were joined by celebrity guests including Paula Abdul, Lisa Rinna, Brooke Burke, Arsenio Hall, Jane Seymour, and Byron Allen, along with many others.
“With autism on the rise and nearly one million Americans living with Parkinson’s disease, families caring for children with autism and those managing loved ones with Parkinson’s disease, need the type of help and hope that the Hollyrod Foundation continues to provide,” said Schiller. “Each year, I look forward to supporting this very worthy cause because these diseases impact too many families.”
Co-founded by Rob Schiller, Shel Sandman, Ian Toporoff, and Rick Stern in 1999, this year’s annual Devon Stern/UCP Golf Tournament is in its 14th year. When Rick’s daughter became physically and mentally disabled after suffering a series of strokes at the age of 3 months in 1996, the Devon Stern Children’s Endowment Fund was created to ensure that children with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities can maximize their potential and live full and dignified lives without limits. Entering its 14th year, the annual Devon Stern/UCP golf tournaments have raised over $300,000.
“What started between friends as a heartfelt gesture of support for one of our own, has grown into a successful annual fundraising event that is making a difference in the lives of children with cerebral palsy,” said Rob Schiller. “While I am blessed with five healthy children, I can only imagine the emotional and financial challenges families face when caring for children with physical and developmental disabilities. Supporting this cause is very important for me.”
