2018 Summer Spectacular


Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention  2018 Summer Spectacular


Annual Gala Focused on Drug Prevention to be Hosted by Mario Lopez,
Featuring Performances by David Lee Roth and Jimmy Kimmel Live! House Band Cleto and the Cletones

Los Angeles, CA Ė Amid promising signs of decreased illegal drug use among teens*, The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention will hold its highly anticipated Summer Spectacular in Beverly Hills on Friday, September 7th.  The invite-only gala celebrates the 13th year of the foundation, which has raised over $3 million for drug awareness and prevention, focused on high-risk communities.

Hosted by Mario Lopez (Extra), and with musical performances by David Lee Roth (Van Halen) and Cleto and the Cletones (house band from Jimmy Kimmel Live!), this yearís gala will bestow the foundationís Spirit of Sobriety Award upon Emmy-winning actor, producer and director Joe ManganielloThe award is given to an individual who is open about their own recovery or that of a friend or family member.  Foundation creators Robert and Linell Shapiro will also present college scholarships to two members of its educational outreach program Brentís Club for successfully completing high school without failing a drug test.

Prominent entertainment industry leaders and celebrities will gather to recognize advances in the fight against addiction and rally around the growing movement to end the disease.  Past event attendees include Sharon Stone, Smokey Robinson, Kris Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner, Tracee Ellis Ross, Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Dr. Drew Pinsky.  Past recipients of the Spirit of Sobriety award include Rob Lowe, Jack Osbourne, Harry Hamlin and Christopher Lawford Kennedy.

The Summer Spectacular gala raises money for the heart of the foundation, Brentís Club. Working in conjunction with The Boys & Girls Club of America, Brentís Club programs educate pre-teens and teens about the consequences of drug use and works to prevent the formation of dangerous habits, actively showing children how to lead drug-free lives.  Members participate in regular drug testing and as a free, rewards-based program, it sponsors community outings and once-in-a-lifetime activities, from NBA star basketball camps to celebrity meet-and-greets. Ultimately, a number of sober graduates are rewarded with college scholarships funded by the foundation. Launched in 2012, Brentís Club currently serves over 1,500 children through programs in Boyle Heights (sponsored by the L.A. Dodgers), Monterey Park, Malibu, Long Beach, the Bronx (sponsored by the New York Giants) and Chicago (sponsored by the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls).
