Jim Jones, Juelz Santana & Lil Mama to Headline 2nd Annual Stay in School Concert
On Wednesday, October 17, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Lil Mama will headline the 2nd Annual Stay in School Concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The show is organized by the Entertainers 4 Education Alliance, radio station Hot 97 and educational partner Catapult Online. The event aims to help combat the alarmingly high 49 percent drop out rate in New York City high schools. It is estimated that some 500 students drop out of New York City high schools each day. "Our goal with this event is to show our children through entertainment that education is important,” said Entertainers 4 Education Alliance Executive Director, Tonya Lewis. “We've brought together some of the coolest music, sports, hip-hop and R&B artists who support education and we're especially excited that HOT 97 and Catapult Online have chosen to partner with us along with our many sponsors including fashion company, Lot 29, who are all encouraging our children to stay in school." Entertainers 4 Education is a non-profit organization that seeks to use talent and resources of the music and entertainment industries to provide support and encouragement to at-risk youth.
