Quincy Jones, Jade Iovine Honored by Children Mending Hearts
Guests such as Ron and Kelly Meyer, Brian Grazer and UTA’s Blair Kohan showed their support at the organization's inaugural Style Sunday.
Ron and Kelly Meyer, Brian Grazer, UTA’s Blair Kohan, CAA’s Christian Carino and Hailee Steinfeld came out to help celebrate Children Mending Hearts' inaugural Style Sunday at the ultra-modern Pritzker Estate in Beverly Hills, honoring Quincy Jones and Jade Iovine.
Jones was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by Reverend Jesse Jackson at Sunday's event, and Iovine, daughter of famed record producer Jimmy Iovine, received the Young Humanitarian of the Year Award.
Lysa and Grant Heslov hosted the picnic-like festivities -- in honor of the organization, which aims to empower disadvantaged youth through educational and arts programs that build empathy and global citizenry -- as about 40 retailers set up shop on the premises. Attendees were able to browse vendors such as JC Penney, Trina Turk, Splendid, Under Armour and Hello Kitty, among others, while sipping “Sunday Funday” cocktails made from Vikingfjord Vodka and enjoying a DJ set by guest and Mgmt 360’s Chris Huvane. All purchase proceeds were given to Children Mending Hearts.
CMH has served nearly 10,000 children through afterschool classes and arts exchange workshops.
Said Jones: “I believe deeply in the value of this organization and am honored to be a part of it.”
