Charity Founded by Leila Steinberg & Tupac Hosting Dinner/Concert

Mike Epps is scheduled to host a benefit dinner and concert to support Assemblies

in Motion (AIM), an international Arts Education non-profit organization founded

by Leila Steinberg and the late Tupac Shakur.

Sponsored by Quincy Jones

and others, the benefit dinner and concert aims to provide support to the international

AIM organization and Steinberg’s "Rose From Concrete" Arts Education

program.

The exclusive charity event

will feature a cocktail reception and a five-course dinner prepared by world

famous chef Nicola Mastronardi and performances by Mike Epps and AIM artists.

A silent auction will also

be held during the charity event. Some of the items for the silent auction include

a private dinner in your home with Chef Nicola Mastronardi, an original poem

handwritten by the late Tupac Shakur while studying with Steinberg and a painting

by young urban artist Capone.

AIM was founded with the

intent to utilize the personal voices of artists through song and spoken word

to educate, heal, communicate, and transform the world.

Through the program, Steinberg

runs a weekly artist workshop where through her innovative teaching techniques;

artists create music and spoken word pieces, which in turn become AIM’s teaching

curriculum.

Steinberg has also been

credited as being very influential in shaping Tupac’s persona in the early

stages of his career. He was a student in the program when it was located in

Baltimore.

She was also instrumental

in introducing and connecting Tupac with Digital Underground.

Proceeds from AIM’s first

annual benefit dinner, will benefit AIM’s Arts Education and rehabilitation

programs in schools, community centers, foster homes, and youth authority facilities.

The charity event will be

held at Vincenti Restaurant in Brentwood, CA on Wednesday, October 26th.
