The annual Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular. Hosted by Mario Lopez (Extra), the event featured a musical performance by David Lee Roth (Van Halen) and Cleto and the Cletones (house band from Jimmy Kimmel Live!), honor actress and singer Demi Lovato with the Spirit of Sobriety Award. Other guests will include Robert Shapiro (Lawyer), Cassie Scerbo (Make it or Break it), Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish), Oscar De La Hoya (Boxer), and Courtney Mazza.
The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Awareness was created because the disease of alcohol and drug dependence is now reaching epidemic proportions.
Alcohol and drug dependency is an out of control disease that is ruining and taking the lives of our young people.
This disease, it is an “equal opportunity” disease that is indiscriminate, affecting all ages from children to the elderly; the rich and poor alike; the educated and uneducated; male and females; and single individuals and families.
Linell and Robert Shapiro lost their son Brent to drugs on October 9, 2005. They have gone through all the steps of living with and accepting the loss of their Brent. Nowadays they are working conscientiously to make sure that other parents do not have to go and get through what they were forced to go and get through. More so, those other children never get to where their son got. This is the entire purpose of the Brent Shapiro Foundation.
The Shapiro family founded this organization as a means of honoring Brent, but more importantly, to do its part in creating awareness about this disease and halting its spread. It is our hope to spare other parents of the pain and grief that follows in its path.
