Thank you for making the first annual ‘The Children Matter’ event such a success!

LA rolled out the red carpet Saturday evening (November 7th) for the first annual ‘The Children Matter’ event, presented by Gene Simmons. ‘The Children Matter’ is a collaborative initiative between Gene Simmons, Matter, and the Starkey Hearing Foundation, centered around the simple belief that the lives of children matter. From expanding access to health and food, to giving the gift of hearing, the mission is to improve lives of thousands of at-risk children around the world.

Hosted at the Beverly Hills home of supporter Rohan Oza, a great group of celebrities, donors, and friends came together to help support this initiative. Guests at this inaugural event enjoyed stunning views of LA, hors d’hoeuvres, cocktails, live-auction, and a special performance by Gene Simmons and fellow KISS guitarist, Tommy Thayer.

Also in attendance: Shannon Simmons, Sophie Simmons, Pete Wentz, Maria Menounos, Randy Jackson, Khandi Alexander, Patrick Warburton, Bai Ling, Kyle Massey, Steven Bauer, Natasha Henstridge, and many more.

On behalf of the entire Matter team, we’d like to say a huge thank you to our entire community of supporters who attended, sponsored and donated to this first annual ‘The Children Matter’ event!
