Celebrities to Present Teen Video Awards

October 23, 1998|JAMES MEIER

Celebrities will help Guadalupe Homes for Children at the first VOTE (Video Outreach for Teen Education) awards in Irvine on Saturday.

The VOTE awards are designed to help at-risk children use their voice through film.

Winning film entries, submitted by various California children, will be produced into public service announcements and distributed to local television stations. The announcements encourage other at-risk children to stay off drugs and away from gangs.

Actors James Villani ("Hang Time"), Alisa Reyes ("One World") and Ricky Luna ("Mickey Mouse Club") will present the VOTE awards, which were judged by actors Billy Zane, Cheech Marin and "The View" talk show co-host Debbie Matenopoulos.

They will join Guadalupe Homes, Pinnacle Systems and others at St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church to enjoy the Taste of Greece festival and the VOTE awards.

Admission is $2, which will be donated to Guadalupe Homes. The event will take place from 1 to 9 p.m. Saturday, with the VOTE awards ceremony at 2:30 p.m. The church is at 4949 Alton Parkway, Irvine.
