"Clear View uses so much of its resources in the provision of its rehabilitation services that they must rely upon donations to provide things like Christmas gifts to their young residents," Varone said. "And you'd be amazed at how much something as simple as a small holiday gift can do to lift these boys' spirits."
The charity event will be hosted by VH1's Phil Varone, of Skid Row and Saigon Kick fame, and features performances by magician, Justin Rivera; musical comedian, Allison Weber; the band, Kottak with frontman James Kottak of The Scorpions; and an all star jam session.
"Phil is one of the hardest working guys in entertainment. In addition to being featured on television shows like Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, he hosts comedy shows, charity events, concerts and so much more," said Desiree Duffie, director of marketing and public relations for Topco Sales. "Besides this event, Topco Sales supported a recent celebrity poker tournament hosted by Phil. We plan on partnering on future projects as well."
Topco Sales provided an in-kind donation to help sponsor the charity event, which takes place Dec. 10 at Angels Roadhouse Bar ‘n’ Grill, located at 1650 E. 6th St. in Corona. Entertainment begins at 8 p.m.
Varone will also be autographing advance copies the Winter 2010 issue of Playgirl magazine whose pages he graced — in the nude — with a 20-page spread.
