No Kid Hungry – No child should go hungry in America. But in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, 1 in 4 kids could face hunger this year. No Kid Hungry is working to end childhood hunger by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. This is a problem we know how to solve. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty.
The Dream Center will benefit from the Justin Turner and Max Muncy experiences. It is a resource center focused on finding solutions to homelessness, hunger and the lack of education through residential and community outreach programs. The Dream Center’s Justin and Kourtney Turner Food Bank have fed over 1,200,000 meals since March 16th of 2020 when they launched their “Grab n Go” program providing families with hot meals, diapers and produce boxes. The food bank also services over 63 local Los Angeles non-profits, processing over one million pounds of food per month.
“iHeartMedia Los Angeles is excited to partner with the new FanVestor fan engagement app at a time when our listeners, the fans, are craving interaction with their favorite artists and trusted iHeartMedia personalities,” said Kevin LeGrett, iHeartMedia’s Division President.
“We are thrilled that FanVestor and iHeartMedia Los Angeles have partnered to offer money-can’t-buy artist experiences at a time when connection, unity and inclusion mean so much to everyone. In addition to qualifying for the daily $1,000 cash prize and the fan experience sweepstakes of their choice for free, fans can also buy additional tickets to enter any other fan experience sweepstakes. We want to raise money in support of these great charities and give everyone a chance to win, not just to the ‘the highest bidder’,” said FanVestor Founder & CEO, Michael Golomb.
