Devoted to Youth will host their first ever “Recapalooza” this Saturday, October 1st starting at 10am. Admission and sporting clinics are free, but kids need to sign up to participate in the tournaments!
From the organizers:
Devoted to Youth / Recapalooza! is a family event that consists of multiple health and fitness competitions based activities and is produced annually by Devoted to Youth (DTY). Devoted to Youth (DTY) is an emerging non-profit organization committed to fundraising, implementing programs and events serving at-risk youth in underserved communities throughout Los Angeles and surrounding cities.
Devoted to Youth / Recapalooza! Is the brainchild of Brady Farmer, President of MC Farmer, Inc., a chef and fitness advocate whose personal mission is to see urban youth live healthier lifestyles. He believes that if youth receive exposure to the myriad of healthy food and recreation options, they will have the ability to make the common sense choices that lead to a fuller and more enriched life. Devoted to Youth / Recapalooza! is also Brady Farmer’s way of giving back to the community and broadening the horizons of youth throughout Los Angeles.
In partnership with Project MuszEd, a local non-profit organization that sponsors music education for youth, Devoted to Youth / Recapalooza! brings you the Teenage Battle of the Bands and Talent Competition produced by DJ Qwess Coast. Registrants are judged by a panel of industry executives. The competition is from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm and runs right into a line-up of headliners such as The Luminaries, Chali 2na and Cali Swag District, all celebrating music from Venice, CA. In further celebration of music from Venice, the Project MuszEd stage features an All-Star Tribute to music icon Teena Marie, who formerly hailed from Venice. The Project MuszEd stage is sponsored by Warehouse Shoe Sale, whose street team will be on hand to facilitate prizes, raffles and giveaway items.
