On January 13th, Education Advantage Foundation (EAF) will be hosting its first celebrity basketball game at Beverly Hills High School. All of the money raised from this event will go directly to the resource centers and life enrichment activities for the children.

EAF celebrity spokesperson, Actor/Comedian Rob Corddry, star of W., What Happens in Vegas, The Daily Show and Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, will be hosting and refereeing the game. The event will also include a silent auction, raffle and half-court challenge.

Education Advantage Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) committed to promoting and facilitating higher education in low-income neighborhoods with the help of Learning Links Centers (LLC), a socially responsible investment/property management company. EAF specially renovates one unit in each apartment building to serve as a study suite called the “Resource Center,” where they provide free after-school tutoring, mentoring and scholarships for children in the program. Resource Centers offer residents a safe haven from drugs, crime and gangs and provide a positive alternative to excessive television, video game use and other distractions. Each center is supplied with a mini-library and reference materials such as educational books, earth and science related materials, arts and craft materials as well as computers with supervised Internet access, and teaching tools for the students and tutors within each building. More information can be found at www.educationadvantage.org.
