The We The Children Project will throw a kickoff party for the upcoming award season on Jan. 28 at The House of Blues in Hollywood.

In efforts to raise awareness about the shocking statistics and unforgiving reality concerning homeless children in the United States, We The Children Project has created an event set to kick the New Year off with a charitable boom.

We The Children 2010 will be the ultimate Pre-Grammy talent competition and philanthropic gathering. While most charitable events are giving away up to 30% of their profits, We The Children Project is giving away 50% of the proceeds donated directly to Stand Up For Kids.

The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band featuring Rick Vito will headline the event. The evening will also feature live music, dancing, cocktails, A-List celebrities, Grammy Nominees and the best of the best of the entertainment industry in attendance.

All ticket buyers will receive a copy of The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band featuring Rick Vito "Blue Again" DVD, which is scheduled to be released on Jan. 26.

An exclusive private dinner will be held at the Foundation room for all celebrity participants including celebrity endorsers, host committee and judging panel, featuring Mick Fleetwood Private Cellar Wine with a special toast by Mick Fleetwood.

The creative environment will be a welcome space for songwriters, artists and those who appreciate innovative efforts to commingle.

We The Children Project is a philanthropic for-profit business model based in Woodland Hills, CA. The project committee, compromised mostly of unemployed recent graduates, young professionals and local students, has focused their efforts on creating their own jobs within a difficult economic climate. Project members have come together to create local community events that benefit those less-fortunate in the global community.
