A charitable auction is being held to spend a day with DJ Skee, a television show host and deejay. The auction is meant to benefit students in Los Angeles' After-School All-Stars, an after school program that says it focuses on academic support, homework assistance, arts, health awareness, leadership and community service learning, among other things.
“I’ve been involved with After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles for many years now,” DJ Skee says in a press release. “The opportunity to engage in an online auction to benefit the kids [in the program] is surely something worthwhile to me.
“It will be a fun afternoon,” DJ Skee continues. “The auction provides me the opportunity to give back to the LA community. This city has given me a lot of opportunities…it feels good to give back to the people in L.A. that need it the most.”
The After-School All Stars, Los Angeles website states an overview of the program. "At each After-School All-Star school site, academic learning support, including homework assistance is provided," the site says. "After students complete their homework assignments, activities are created incorporating three pillars of program: Visual and Performing Arts; Heath, Nutrition and Physical Fitness; Leadership, Character Development & Community Service Learning."
Bids on this auction can be made via Charitybuzz.
DJ Skee's television show, SKEE Live, which airs on AXS TV, has featured several rappers, including Kendrick Lamar, who appeared on the show's premiere episode.
