LLF Celebrates 27th Anniversary



THE LIVING LEGENDS FOUNDATION (LLF) will celebrate its 27th Anniversary Awards Gala at the TAGLYAN CULTURAL COMPLEX in LOS ANGELES.
This years benefit event will take place on FRIDAY OCTOBER 5th. Festivities will start at 6:30p (PT).

FOUNDATION Chairman DAVID LINTON said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are elated to salute this group of industry trailblazers. This year, we are introducing a new award and rebranding another to memorialize two industry icons and former board members, MIKE BERNARDO and A.D. WASHINGTON respectively. Both were giants in the business who broke many artists, groomed executives, and dedicated themselves to the FOUNDATION. This is an event for the entire industry, and we invite you to help us celebrate these unsung heroes while raising funds to assist the less fortunate among us. It’s going to be a special night.”

The Honorary Chairperson this year is EPIC RECORDS President SYLVIA RHONE. The Event Chairperson is ROC NATION SVP/Promotion AZIM RASHID.

Proceeds will allow the LLF to continue helping industry members with strong financial needs and contribute to the FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP program; helping further the educational pursuits for the next generation of music makers & marketers at three Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs).
