UTA to hold Uni High fundraiser

'Summer Bash' on Aug. 25 will benefit school's arts program

It’s back to school time for the UTA Foundation.The tenpercentery’s philanthropic arm will mount its annual Summer Bash fundraiser Aug. 25 to benefit University High School’s arts program. Event at BevHills’ Bar 210 will be co-hosted by Adam Shankman, David Arquette and Elizabeth Banks.

West L.A.’s Uni High has been a major focus of UTA’s charitable efforts since the agency’s foundation was established in 2004. At that time, UTA went to the L.A. school district to see what schools were most in need of an arts patron.

“We found out Uni High School had no partners to help with its creative arts program and decided they were a perfect fit,” says UTA Foundation director Rene Jones.

As part of its alliance with the school, several UTA partners and agents head to Uni High every fall to hear student proposals for how the donation will be spent. Coin from the foundation to the school to date has reached six figures and has helped fund a band for the school’s basketball games and a new dance floor for the dance team.

Enhancing the school’s music department has also been a top priority.

“Before the foundation got involved, half the students were using paper as keys on a keyboard to practice,” Jones says. “Now each student can practice on a keyboard.”
