The event honored musician and arts activist Moby, who is known for his significant contributions in supporting the arts for public schools. Many celebrities turned up to support the cause including Jane Lynch, one of three co-founders for Adopt The Arts.

“As you can see it’s a huge event and we’re raising a lot of money,” Jane said.  “And we’re helping a lot of schools get art programs here in LA.”

Co-Founder Matt Sorum commented on the need to raise awareness and the importance of saving arts programs in public schools, telling BJ,

“We need to not only help these kids with financing and bringing in teachers, but we need to put the word out that we’re opposed to this.”
