“The Grammy Awards Pre-Party at The Highlands-Kodak Theater was a success by any standard. In the words of Actor Michael Quiroga, ‘it was a great introduction to Hollywood culture!’ Indeed, security informed me on the night of the event that an incredible 2,132 people attended, which is a significant number given that most were Hollywood celebrities, political dignitaries, and entertainment industry professionals. Members of the Screen Actors Guild and Lions Club attended, as did a wealth of actors, recording artists (including members of the Grammys), movie directors and producers.

The economy has hit the nation hard, and it is events like these that help to reenergize the entertainment industry and further the lives of younger artists. In addition, David Levi is promoting breast cancer awareness, which is a worthy cause we can all agree to support.” Dr. Carvalho concluded.

Event organizers reported that they were able to collect about 600 toys & canned food items for the USMC Toys For Tots & the Los Angeles Mission.

Editor’s Note: The only problem with AFI Fest 2010 was that we needed to apply for multiple media/press or guest list to attend the gala or special events, that’s too much. Any how AFI Fest 2010 was held from November 4 – 11, 2010 and presented by Audi. We want to thanks the event publicist and staff for allowing us to be part of “A” class event and we hope to continue covering the best of AFI. Our representatives Daniela Hubbard, Mark Valinsky and Esteban Aka Steven Escobar were from the first day to the last day bringing to our readers the best of AFI. Please enjoy the photos and feel free to contact us.
